2004 Hallcrest Vineyards Barrel Select Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

437 cases, $35. Veteran winemaker John Schumacher crafts multiple exquisite Pinot Noirs from purchased grapes. This wine is a vintner’s reserve from special barrels. · I have tasted this wine previously on several occasions and it has always showed well. A bold wine with plenty of showy ripe fruit, but with defining acidity and a smooth texture. A complete wine. Reviewed July 7, 2008
