2010 Waypoint Blue Farm Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir
14.5% alc., $35.95. This 7-acre Pinot Noir vineyard is in Anne Moller-Racke’s backyard and contains a mixture of clones. She has been farming grapes in Carneros for over 30 years and currently is director of The Donum Estate. The name of the vineyard comes from the blue Victorian farmhouse on the property. · Moderately dark reddishpurple color in the glass. Aromas of dark berries, Hoison sauce, cigar box and a hint of smoky oak. Tasty core of dark cherries and dark red berries with touch of toasty oak in the background. The fruit veers to the ripe side, but is hard to resist. A worthy mid-weight wine with silky tannins, a soft mouth feel, and a thrust of black cherry on the finish. Good.
