2009 Paul Lato “Duende” Gold Coast Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 100 cases, unfiltered. · Moderately dark reddish purple color in the glass. Well-sustained bouquet of cherry, mashed berries, spice and savory herbs. Redder fruit in this vintage with an accent of herbal tea. Bright and somewhat crisp, with balanced tannins, complimentary oak treatment, and a long finish. Delightful! Drink now to 2022.
