2009 J. Lohr Fog’s Reach Pinot Noir Arroyo Seco CA 14% $28

This shows some toasted oak character on the nose, but there are nice carob, clay earth and eucalyptus tones accenting the sour raspberry fruit.  This is very focused in the mouth. It is seamless with fine supporting acidity and superbly managed tannins lending volume without detracting from the mouthfeel. Smooth as silk with nice milk chocolate accented bitter cherry fruits on the palate. The flavors are a touch light, if nicely balanced and pure, with the oak and some medicinal cola notes popping on the moderately long finish. Does show some heat. 89pts
