2006 Brogan Cellars Michaela’s Reserve Summa Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., $110. The last Brogan Cellars Pinot Noir from Summa Vineyard. Crafted from young vines. Named for Margi’s granddaughter born in 2006. Aged 15 months in 50% new French oak. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Enticing aromas of black cherry liquor and vanillin oak. Layered and flashy on the palate with delicious flavors of well-spiced redder fruits which cling to the lengthy finish. Beautifully balanced with a dreamy mouth feel. A special wine with years of life ahead. Reviewed July 22, 2012
