Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara 2007
New York Times Picks for Pinot Noir "On The Lighter Side"Good bright, full red. Reticent aromas of black cherry, licorice, underbrush, fresh herbs and rose petal; opened nicely with air. Began slightly reduced, with dry-edged cherry and bitter chocolate flavors, but grew sweeter and more pliant with aeration. A nicely structured pinot that stays light on its feet. This builds nicely on the back half, and turned creamier with extended aeration.
This was a poor wine. Very acidic with harsh tannins and a long unpleasant after taste. I am tossing the rest of this bottle. I decanted this bottle for several hours and still have the same opinion.
External Reviews for Au Bon Climat Santa Barbara
If you want exceptional California Pinot Noir for your money – look no further. This well-balanced Pinot has rich, red-raspberry fruit with smoky notes. This delicious wine is a natural choice with food. By hand-selecting the grapes from the best fruit Santa Barbara has to offer and through careful bottling, this winemaker does his job.
