2005 Brogan Cellars My Father’s Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 150 cases, $60. Aged in 50% new French oak barrels for 15 months. · The nose will make the hairs on the back of your neck stand erect. Oodles of black cherries, berry pie, sage, Moroccan spice, and violets. Wow! A richly flavored wine brimming with black raspberries with a hint of citrus peel in the background (think lemon custard with raspberries). Even some spearmint flavor shows up. A very interesting wine which still has enough structure to go the distance. Reviewed May 26, 2009
