2009 William James Cellars Garey Ranch Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 14.1% $35

This shows a bit of heat on the nose, with nicely sweet herb and gentle toasty oak notes accenting lightly jammy lingonberry, black cherry and wild red cherry fruit. Bright and firm on entry, this shows a relatively muscular, sinewy structure. There’s not a lot of intensity here, though there is fairly rich body. Some blood orange notes emerge, accenting a light Smith Brothers cough drop note on the back end that disappears quickly on the short, slightly tannic, earthy finish. Shows a nice cherry pit finale. 89pts
