2008 Toulouse Estate Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., pH 3.89, 550 cases, $50. · Moderately light in color. The nose is savory with notes of cherries, oak and a whiff of alcohol. Oak-kissed dilute fruit with a hint of root beer. No smoke notes but seems stripped. Decent. Reviewed June 8, 2010
