2006 Pelerin Cuvee St. Vincent Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $36. Sourced from several top vineyards including Rosella’s, Paraiso, Fairview Road Ranch, and Tondre Grapefield. · Moderately dark reddish-purple robe. Fruity aromas backed by floral, wet oak and green notes. Oak-kissed dark red fruits are tasty but lack conviction. Supple tannins, bright acidity and overall a decent drink. Has a spark, but doesn’t reach excellence because of a detracting green note most evident on the finish. Decent. Reviewed February 15, 2010
