2008 Paul Lato “Suerte” Solomon Hills Vineyard Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir

$65. Barrel sample. Clones 115, 667 and 777. · Appealing scents of spiced dark fruits and wet leaves. Moderately rich essence of blue and black fruits with a spicy, earthy underpinning. Impressive persistence on the generous finish. The tannins are well proportioned. Still very young but superb potential. Very good (+). Reviewed March 11, 2010
