2009 Saintsbury Brown Ranch Carneros Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., $60. Planted to Dijon clones in 1992. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Interesting nose with aromas of alpine strawberries, black cherries, mint, forest and cut flowers. Very savory on the palate with mushroom and earth notes, dark stone and berry fruit, and a supporting cast of firm tannins. Very dry on the finish. Good. Reviewed April 13, 2013
