2009 Cherry Pie Stanly Ranch Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $50. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. The wine is cherry centric which, given the name, is no surprise. Flavors of crushed cherries, spice, sassafras and sandalwood in a medium to full-bodied style with complimentary oak and good staying power on the finish. Structurally firm but proportional to the fruit extract creating an overall impression of balance. Packs a little heat on the finish as it warms in the glass. Good. Reviewed January 11, 2012
