2008 de Coelo Quintus Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $69. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Remarkably nuanced aromatic profile featuring scents of black cherries, spices, mocha java, smoky oak and exotic purple flowers. A wine of the earth with loam-infused black cherry and berry flavors, a hint of tar, dusty tannins and bright acidity that lifts the rustic finish. Clean and silky with many years of life ahead. Very Good (+). Reviewed December 14, 2010
