2004 Hamel Campbell Ranch Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., 568 cases, $28 This is from a vintage that was very warm at the start of harvest. The result was a powerful and structured wine. · Last time I tasted it earlier this year it was still a debutante waiting to come out. Now it is the belle of the ball. This Pinot is a cherries jubilee and my wife actually got excited about this one. She insisted I buy some and put it aside in a corner of my cellar just for her. Patty’s pick of the litter.
