Cline Cellars Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Cool Climate 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

Bright red fruit characteristics emerge along with deep color, lush body, touches of vanilla and spearmint followed by delicate strawberry flavor. This is a food friendly wonder child that can stand up to lamb or roast beef yet won’t overpower lighter fish or pasta dishes.

This is pretty frankly oaky on the nose with smoke and asphalt tones covering sweet graham cracker and herb tones. A bit fat on entry with a round, lush soft leading edge and extracted tannins. This is rather large scaled with indistinct yet sweet dark berry and plum fruit topped with some vanilla. The finish shows better clarity though still oaky the texture lightens considerably and the fruit reddens, lingering in the mouth with a fine cherry note. A bit sweet and simple but this offers a lot for the price and competes well with wines costing more. 87pts
