2004 Marimar Estate Dona Margarita Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $36. This wine comes from a 20-acre high-density planting (2,340 vines/acre) in western Sonoma County at 600 feet. Located in the Freestone Valley between Freestone and Occidental, it is only six miles east of the Pacific Ocean. Soils are Goldridge type. Clones are Pommard and 115. · This wine has a “Burgundy” bent. Nutty, earthy nose, and dense black raspberry, smoky, earthy and woodsy flavors. Some drying tannins still persist on the finish. Quite enjoyable for its distinctive sauvage character. Reviewed April 7, 2008
