2009 Brogan Cellars My Father’s Vineyard Margi’s Reserve Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

13.8% alc., $65. · Dark reddish-purple color in the glass. Brooding aromas of black stone fruits, cassis and oak. Flavors of dark red and black fruits flood the mid palate, brightened by lively acidity, and leaving a lasting impression on the generous finish. Sporting generous grippy tannins that need time to integrate and soften. A smooth and satiny texture is appealing. Wait a few years on this one. Very good. Reviewed July 1, 2011
