2008 Guarachi Family Wines Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., $40. One of the heaviest bottles I have ever lifted! · Moderately dark garnet color. Alluring perfume of spiced fresh berries with a minty garnish. Tasty and smooth in the mouth with plenty of dark cherry and berry intensity and a touch of cola, all wrapped in modest sinewy tannins. The wine’s sensual texture speaks Pinot. Very good.
