2009 Cartha Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $26. · Deep reddish-purple color in the glass. Nicely scented with aromas of dark stone fruits and ollaliberries, spice and a complimentary touch of oak. Richly endowed with a striking dark fruit core accented with flavors of anise, tea and smoky oak all robed in modest tannins. The fruit really attracts your attention and the smooth mouth feel is very seductive. Very good (+). Reviewed July 1, 2011
