2006 Loma Prieta Winery Saveria Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 195 cases, $50. · A complex aromatic profile that changes constantly in the glass. Black cherry is a constant but there are fleeting scents of spice, cinnamon candy, sawdust, mocha, vanilla and prune. Flamboyant dark cherry and berry flavors with an earthy underpinning and a touch of oak. Full-bodied and intense, but framed nicely with acidity and moderate fine tannins that become more prominent in the glass over time. Reviewed March 15, 2009
