2004 WesMar Balletto Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 151 cases, $37. 75% Balletto Vineyard fruit. The vineyard is located near Freestone in the Sonoma Coast. · The nose takes a little coaxing but the aromatics eventually arrive on stage with panache, strutting fresh red and black Pinot fruits and spice. Plush in the mouth with luscious cherry and berry fruit and a little bit of Sonoma Coast earthiness. This wine is a little deeper, plumper and earthier than the others from this vintage, but it is still true to the house style with perfect balance and brisk acidity on the finish. Pinch me, I'm dreaming. Reviewed July 17, 2006
