2007 Sequana Sarmento Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., pH 3.82, $32. · Winemaking regimen same as for Sundawg Ridge bottling. Heavily oaked fruit with an underpinning of earth and herbs on both the nose and palate. Smoothly textured with restrained tannins and a dry finish which leaves an unpleasant oak tug. Decent. Reviewed October 29, 2009
