2007 Steele Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

8,000 cases, $22. · Veers to the ripe side but offers a mouth coating load of spicy fruits with accents of brown sugar and root beer. The tannins are reserved and there is a pleasing lift of citric peel acidity on the finish. A good value wine. Reviewed January 27, 2011
