2005 Prodigal Wines Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 275 cases, $36. The first appellation release from this new producer. · Sexy aromatics of red Pinot fruits, violet and subtle oak spice. Elegantly styled. Decent fruit on the attack which fades a bit on the back end. Easy to drink, just wish for more on the finish. A producer to watch with great promise. Reviewed December 16, 2007
