Elisabeth Spencer Wines Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast Rouge 2005

Member Review by 40somethinglife:

This particular Pinot is almost purple in color. The initial aroma is of cherry liquor and smoky tobacco with a hint of spice. It is also quite oaky and somewhat complex. The wine starts out very full bodied and has flavors of dark plum, cherries and a sharp acidic bite that makes it quite intriguing to taste. As the wine opens up more it almost becomes delicate and light, very smooth and drinkable. It loses some of the acidity and just tickles the taste buds with spices and ends with a silky smooth long finish. I was practically turning my glass upside down and shaking it for more wine, but with three of us tasting this wine, the bottle ran out very quickly L:). Don't worry, I have another bottle!!!!

A delicious small-production pinot noir that strikes the perfect balance between a good acidic backbone and lush fruit. kybecca.com

Lovely Pinot Noir, and I am not even a fan of Pinot. Lovely fruits, with a dash of pepper.
