Clos Lachance Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains 2008
A lighter purple color that can be seen through. On the nose, dark cherry with some cola qualities. The palate concurs with the nose, although there are strawberry flavors on the tart finish. A little more earth driven than a typical California Pinot Noir. Medium acid with soft tannins. There are hints of all-spice, vanilla, cinnamon and rosemary on the finish.
