2006 Hangtime Force Canyon Vineyard Arroyo Seco Pinot Noir

13.55 alc., $15. Named for the lengthy hang time (123 days) of the grapes in this wine. · Ripe, jammy berries with hint of new oak on the nose. Thrust of ripe fruit flavors which are slightly raisiny with a touch of tea and mocha dust. Fruity and flavorful, lightly weighted but satisfying. Balanced and clean with admirable finesse. A recession buster. Reviewed May 7, 2009
