2009 Paul Lato “Suerte” Solomon Hills Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 200 cases, unfiltered. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. Nicely perfumed with a bouquet of black stone and berry fruits, dark rose petal, potpourri, toast and spice. Mid weight plus styled and slightly creamy on the palate, with a big gulp of boysenberry and blackberry fruit. Still fresh with enough tannins and fruit to balance the high alcohol for further evolution. Drink now to 2024+. Reviewed February 13, 2017
