2007 Jim Ball Vineyards Signature Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $30. · Subdued but pleasant scents of black cherries and oak. The oak influence carries through on the palate. Decent cherry and berry tastes backed by savory herbs with a finish that is short and dry. Not up to the quality of the 2006 vintage bottling of this wine. The wines are sold through a mailing list at www.jimballvineyards.com with some retail distribution. Reviewed September 19, 2009
