2006 Calstar Cellars Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $28.50. This is winemaker Richard Davis’s own label. He also makes the wines at Halleck Vineyard and Londer Vineyards. Best of Class winner at the 2008 Sonoma County Harvest Fair Wine Competition. Sourced from Sangiacomo and Hallberg vineyards. · Bright Bing cherry initially, developing a darker fruit profile with time in the glass. Cherry-driven flavors with a hint of prune, tea and subtle oak. A very satisfying drink that is silky textured and beautifully composed. Not a serious wine, but readily accessible and a good value.
