2005 MacPhail Toulouse Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.9% alc., 375 cases. Clones 2A, 115, 667 and 777. Native fermentations, aged 11 months in French oak barrels, unfined and unfiltered. · Charming and complex aromatic mix of red plums, strawberries, redwood and some good funk. Nicely composed and layered red fruit palate that is lip-smacking. Perfectly balanced with suede tannins, a pillowy texture and complete integration of the alcohol. Very Caliesque in style and utterly hedonistic. Reviewed June 5, 2009
