2006 Gypsy Canyon Santa Rita Creek Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., $75. · Moderate garnet color in the glass. Initially the nose offers delicate red fruits, savory herbs, oak and hay progressing over time to notes of dried fruits, green tea and dark chocolate. Ripe fruit flavors with accents of chocolate, green tea and finishing dry with a hint of citrus peel. Mediumweighted with admirable elegance and balance. Good. Reviewed March 11, 2010
