2009 Saracina Klindt Vineyard Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $30. A boutique winery founded by John Fetzer and spouse Patty Rock in 2001. · Moderately dark reddish-purple hue in the glass. Shy and demure aromas of black raspberry jam with an exotic tea note. A beautiful wine with plenty of earthy dark fruit presence in the mouth. Notes of spice, brewed tea, and plum sauce add interest. Crisp and clean with a minerality evident on the long aristocratic finish. Impeccably crafted to last in the cellar. Still fine the next day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle.
