2009 MacPhail Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., 1,250 cases, $39. From Pratt, Gap’s Crown, Wildcat and Sangiacomo vineyards. Aged 11 months in 40% new French oak barrels. · Bright and fruity aromatics draw you in. Ripe, darker berry and cherry fruits are featured in this medium-weight wine with subtle oak highlights, finishing with respectable intensity of fruit, leaving a hint of heat in its wake. A fruit-driven style. Good. Reviewed March 12, 2011
