2008 Sinor-LaVallee San Luis Obispo County Central Coast Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., 133 cases, $29. Vineyard sources vary from year to year as Mike searches for the next vineyard designate. · Moderate reddish-purple hue in the glass. Explosive aromas of cherries, strawberries, cola and cardamom spice. Very tasty core of dark red cherries and berries with subtle oak, cola, chocolate and spice in the background. Lighter in intensity than the other 2008 Sinor-LaVallee Pinot Noirs, but thoroughly satisfying. With supple tannins and impeccable balance, this wine makes a terrific daily drinker and one to buy by the case. Very good. Reviewed May 15, 2011
