2007 Calstar Cellars Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $22. From winemaker Rick Davis (Londer, Halleck). · The nose starts off bright with aromas of black cherries, red berries, spring herbs and a hint of oak. Over time in the glass, the intensity fades unveiling notes of wet leaves and brioche. Nicely herbed red fruits with discreet richness, soft tannins, and moderate persistence. A workhorse Pinot that is not extraordinary, but has everything in check leading to a pleasant drinking experience that is value-priced to boot. Decent (+) Reviewed February 15, 2010
