2006 Mount Eden Vineyards Saratoga Cuvée Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., $30. Grapes for this blend come from three vineyards in the Santa Cruz Mountains: Woodside, Mount Eden and Santa Cruz Mountain. · Light ruby color. Appealing aromas of cherries, strawberries, herbs and roasted nuts. On the palate the wine is reserved with flavors focused on cherry enhanced by herbs and spice. The tannins are fine, the acidity is lively and the finish is tangy and slightly citric. A pleasant, simple wine for early consumption. Reviewed March 15, 2009
