2008 Alma Rosa Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir 14.1% $30

Very pretty on the nose. Lean but fresh and ripe fruit is backed up with notes of dried herbs and flowers, underlain by some sweet, toasty oak and topped with aromatic smoke. Nicely rich on entry. A glassy feel and taut acids early on slowly get covered by some lovely slightly bitter cherry and dark raspberry extract flavors, with even a hint of black currant. There’s some nice mineral and spice notes underpinning the sweet fruit here, which lightens considerably on the long and gently hot finish. Really nicely aromatic and bright. 90pts
