2010 The Seeker Pinot Noir

Very sweet on the nose with lots of herb, tobacco and violet spice notes over complex and elegant wild blueberry and blackberry fruit. This is a touch sweet on entry as well but I think that will fade with a little bit of time in the bottle. On the mid-palate, this is tense and a bit firm with nice wild strawberry and cherry fruit that shows a faint edge of earthy animal. The finish is a touch short and mostly about the savory tannins at this point. If this can shift some of the fruit from the front of the palate to the back, the wine will move up a point or two, but it already offers a nice alternative to most Pinots at this price. 88pts
