2008 Paul Lato “Duende” Gold Coast Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

100 cases, $60. Barrel sample. Aged in 50% new French oak barrels. Martini clone, 14 year-old vines. · Light in intensity and highly aromatic in the fashion of a Chambolle Musigny. Dark fruits, underlying earthiness and edible flower. Well structured to last. Down the road will become even more savory. Very good. Reviewed March 11, 2010
