2007 Merryvale Carneros Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $35. · The nose is a chameleon, offering scents that vary from cherries to raspberry tart, from herb garden to sweet oak. Perfectly fine cherry flavors with a sidecar of oak toast and baking spices and a baked cookie note. Beautifully balanced and refreshing to drink. Not a blockbuster, but I could be perfectly happy with this wine any night with dinner. Reviewed July 9, 2009
