2005 Alcina Cellars Ramondo Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.7% alc., $53. Ramondo Vineyard is located in Sebastopol and straddles the line between the warmer Russian River Valley and cooler Sonoma Coast fruit profile. · The darkest wine of the lineup with the most body and richness. The nose is closed with brooding dark tarry aromas still reticent after two hours. Teeth-staining plush fruit with edges of oak and chocolate. Despite its heft, it is supple and the finish is silky. A big mouthful that is currently shy and would benefit from decanting and/or aging. Reviewed October 20, 2007
