2009 de Coelo Terra Neuma Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

Not released. Fermented with native yeast. Aged in French oak barrels for 16 months. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Exotically spiced Pinot fruits on the nose with flavors of dark berries and cherry cobbler that are generous in intensity even at this young age. An acid-driven minerality lifts the fruit. A striking wine that makes an immediate impression. Very good (+). Reviewed March 12, 2011
