2004 Sinor-LaVallee Aubaine Vineyards Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 176 cases, $35. Clones 667 and 777. · Reserved aromas of berry jam and oak char lead to viscous black and blue fruit flavors, tastes of tar, earth and dark chocolate and moderate drying tannins. A big wine that is still “one big rich pussycat.” Reviewed November 17, 2008
