2009 Furthermore Rosella’s Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.66, TA 0.67, 70 cases, $50. Clones 828 and Pisoni. Aged 12 months in 50% new French oak barrels. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Very savory in style. Aromas of dark red cherries, sage and other herbs. Herb-toned red fruit with notes of green and black olives. Modest tannins. About the same the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. A bit atypical for Rosella’s in my experience. Good. Reviewed June 24, 2012
