2005 Roessler Cellars Clos Pepe Vineyard Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., 175 cases, $45. · Utterly charming aromas of a freshly-baked cherry pie with a hot browned crust. Delicious stone fruits, silky mouth feel, and a clean, scented and lip-smacking finish. Impeccable balance. This wine has the whole package and there is nothing to critique here, just pure, unadulterated drinking pleasure. Brilliantly crafted and one of the best wines from Clos Pepe Vineyard I have ever had. This one has everything you could hope for and some things you didn’t know to ask for. Reviewed March 17, 2008
