2007 Heart O’ The Mountain Estate Triple Seven Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 44 cases,$48. Whole berry fermentation after cold maceration. Aged 20 months in French oak. Unfined, unfiltered. · Deep color. Brooding nose showing ripe dark stone fruits, a hint of oak char and barnyard. Plenty of rich, plush and very ripe plum fruit fans out on the palate. The oak is a subtle accent, the texture is all velvet, and the finish lingers. A bold and aggressive wine that will appeal to lovers of hedonistic fruit. Very good. Reviewed November 13, 2009
