2007 Alesia Falstaff Road Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

This vineyard is located adjacent Benovia Winery planted in sandy Goldridge soils and impeccably farmed by owners Ron and Judy Lougheed. · Saddle up for this big boned wine. Very dark reddish-purple in color. When you pour it, you know you are in for a ride. Complex nose of dark stone fruits, hi-country forest and cardamon spice. Luscious dark fruit liqueur that is rich and plush on the mid palate with uncommonly long persistence. Olallieberry fruit stands out. Seriously fruity and definitely Caliesque but not jammy in the least with impeccable balance. Reviewed February 25, 2009
