2005 Brogan Cellars My Father’s Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.0% alc., 150 cases, $60. Aged 15 months in 50% new French oak barrels. This vineyard has grafts from Rochioli Vineyard. · Dark reddishpurple hue in the glass. Alluring scents of wild berries, brown spice, brioche and sawn wood. Very subtle possibility of cork taint (second bottle not available). Intense and persistent cherry and berry fruits tasting like jam on toast. Plenty of acidity on the refreshing finish. Good. Reviewed September 8, 2010
