Brophy Clark Pinot Noir Santa Maria Valley 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little tight on the nose, this shows a fairly significant oak influence though the wood isn't spicy or particularly toasty. There's some lurking black fruit and licorice base notes as well. Supple and broad in the mouth, this retains nice transparency on the palate without being particularly bright and delivers a nice blend of blackberry, cherry, mint and licorice flavors that pick up more green herb and light woody notes on the back end. The finish shows a nice sweetness to the black cherry fruit, balancing out the slightly bitter, licorice flavors and wood tannins. Would be better with food. 88pts

This delicious and opulent Chardonnay is highlighted by flavors of white peach, apricot and pippinapples. The wine's natural acidity is balanced by a rich mid-palate with hints of butterscotch and anearthy mineral character, supported by toasty oak.
