Flying Goat Santa Maria Dierberg Vineyard Pinot Noir 2008
The Dierberg is a gorgeous deep ruby color, with glints of garnet around the edges. Black and Bing cherry aromas first delight the senses with a swirl... Plums, black cherry, cola and a beautiful berry profile then lead to a red fruit profile of red plum and cherries jubilee. The wine sings with layers of flavors, an elegant depth and mid-palate texture and soft tannins - and that sunshine in a bottle that just says "Dierberg" to us. This wine is showing beautifully in its youth, but will continue to integrate and gain complexity over the next 5-8 years.
