2009 Maggy Hawk Jolie Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., pH 3.62, TA 0.55, 237 cases, $66. From 10.03 acre Block 7, clone 115. Aged 15 months in 23% new French oak barrels. · Moderately dark reddishpurple color in the glass. Showy aromas of red cherries and raspberries with a hint of forest floor, compost and oak. Lushly flavored yet sleek and seductive with a core of deep raspberry flavor complimented by a whisper of oak. A pretty wine yet endowed with good structural bones, finishing long and opulent. Still solid the following day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Very good (+). Reviewed December 8, 2012
