2005 Saintsbury Garnet

13.5% alc., 16,300 cases, $20. 20% estate fruit. · Light in color, this is a fresh, early drinking style of Pinot Noir. There is a surprising amount of structure and heft with a substantial tannic backbone. There is noticeable oak influence, but plenty of fruit to counterbalance it. Alot of Pinot for less than $20, and an excellent daily drinker. Reviewed February 26, 2007
