2009 Paul Lato “Seabiscuit” Zotovich Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

14.7% alc., 75 cases, unfiltered. · Moderate reddish purple color in the glass. The nose is initially quite complex, offering a bouquet of black cherry, spice, brioche, forest floor, and salinity. Fresh and invigorating upon opening, but fading slightly over time in the glass. Impressive harmony and elegance with nothing sticking out, offering flavors of black cherry and purple and black berries. Well-proportioned tannins, with notable fruit persistence on the finish. Drink now to 2022. Reviewed February 13, 2017
