2004 Sinor LaVallee Anniversary Cuvee Arroyo Grande Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 46 cases, $40. 100% whole cluster fermented from Talley-Rincon and Aubaine vineyards. Foot-stomped by family and friends to celebrate family and marriage. · Intoxicating scents of black raspberries and blackberries, nicely oaked. A big-boned wine with plenty of sweet dark fruit but retaining a mouth filling plushness and smoothness. A welcome citric tang brings up the finish. Fans of the hedonistic style of Pinot Noir will go ga-ga over this one. This wine should drink beautifully for many years ahead. Reviewed November 17, 2008
