2006 Philo Ridge Vineyards Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 410 cases, $19. Released February 2010. Sourced from Ferrington Vineyard. Aged 22 months in 50% new French oak barrels and bottle aged for 9 months. · Moderately intense reddish-purple color in the glass. The nose is very floral with notes of forest floor and mint. An elegantly styled wine that is nicely flavored with cherries and spice. A value-play that tastes much better than it smells. Good. Reviewed June 8, 2010
