2005 Sarah’s Vineyard Estate Santa Clara Valley Pinot Noir

15.9% alc., 502 cases, $25. This is a historic property, founded in 1978 and planted to a variety of proprietary clones. · The grapes for this wine appear to have hung too long. An over ripe fruit character dominates the wine which displays burnt jam and raisin flavors. The nose offers the smell of ripe cherries, mushrooms, beets and a hint of alcohol. There is plenty of acid and a grapefruit flavor that mars an otherwise lingering finish. Reviewed August 4, 2008
