2005 Lane Tanner Bien Nacido Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 264 cases, $30. · The back label says “When are we going to live, if not now?” She has that right. This wine has a very nice perfume of ripe cherry, cassis and toast. There is plenty of backend power and a great sweet cherry kiss at the end that lasts and lasts. The whole package is nicely composed and balanced. What a novel idea - a California Pinot Noir with 13% alcohol - you can drink a couple of glasses without getting sideways. Not for Cabophiles or lovers of FrankenPinots. Reviewed March 5, 2007
