2010 Senders Las Brisas Carneros Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., 170 cases, $38. Sourced from Las Brisas Vineyard, clones 667, 777 and Swan. Aged 18 months in French oak barrels. · Moderate reddish-purple hue in the glass. The nose offers appealing aromas of fresh cherries, forest floor and herb garden. Vivid black cherry and dark red berry fruits are featured with a finishing touch of spice. The tannins are nicely balanced, the texture is silky, and the black cherry really sings on the well-endowed ending. Very good (+). Reviewed June 4, 2013
