2008 Furthermore La Encantada Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., pH 3.66, 50 cases, $39.95. Organic and biodynamic vineyard owned and farmed by Richard Sanford. Clones 115, 667 and 777. Aged 12 months in 50% new French oak barrels. · Moderately dark reddish-purple hue in the glass. Aromas of dark stone fruits and berries highlighted by oak spice and toast. Tasty core of moderately concentrated dark red and black fruits with an earthy and savory caste, and a refreshing citrus tang on the finish. The enticing and heady fruit is lifted nicely by the acidity and the creamy mouthfeel is appealing. This wine gives you a big charge of fruit and little else, but that fruit charge is delicious. Good (+). Reviewed September 8, 2010
