2006 Aston Estate Sonoma Coast Clone 777 Pinot Noir

14,7% alc., $70. · Subdued nose showing demure black cherry and wild herb aromas with a whiff of alcohol. Substantial dark red fruit core with a hint of chocolate. The wine is quite withdrawn at present. Nicely balanced with a clean finish. This shows good potential and will benefit from another one to two years in bottle. Reviewed July 19, 2008
