2008 Costa De Oro Estate Reserva Oro Rojo Gold Coast Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

$50. Barrel sample. A barrel selection with extended barrel aging and more new oak. 75% Martini clone, 25% Dijon clones 115 and 667. · Aromas and flavors of wild blackberries and black raspberries with notes of white pepper, spice and loamy underbrush. Delicious and persistent in the mouth with caressing grainy tannins. A special wine deserving of the reserve designation. Very good. Reviewed March 11, 2010
