2007 Merryvale Stanly Ranch Estate Carneros Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., $45. Sourced from favorite blocks of the sustainably-farmed estate vineyard on the historic Stanly Ranch. · Fresh and vibrant aromas of summer cherries and berries with complimentary oak spice. Mediumweighted flavors of earth and mineral-dusted black cherries with an echo of oak char in the background. Very smoothly textured with dry, ripe tannins. This wine speaks of the soil and is the best wine I have had from this vineyard in recent memory. Reviewed July 9, 2009
