Fogdog Pinot Noir 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Fogdog Pinot Noir is loaded with vibrant red fruit, tangerine peel, wild chanterelle mushrooms and crushed violet aromas. It has great energy, given its freshness and lively acidity, and simply bursting with red raspberry, plump red cherry and rhubarb. During the Fogdog selection process, we look for wines that boast expressive, wild fruit characteristics in addition to texture and acidity that are approachable upon release without extended bottle aging.

amazing value. this is young and vivacious with lots fruit but also some Burgundian earth and vegetal components. This could easily pass as a modern Burgundy. I would love to cellar this and see what is going on in 5 years.

Great color a little darker than a typical pinot. Fantastic aroma - sweet berries almost like cherry pie, with hints of alcohol. Flavors of cherry with hints of vanilla. Acidity balances everything out and a long finish that lasts and lasts.

Tasting Notes - The complex nose offers harmonious aromas of black and red currants, sour cherries, black tea and nuances of Asian spices. The wine enters with lush, sweet and concentrated flavors of wild strawberry, plum and blackberry liqueur. The backbone of acid, minerality and supple tannins fill the mouth and carry through with a long, persistent finish and a surprisingly spicy snap.

Distinctly Sonoma Coast in the forest berry fruits and feral, earthy notes of anise, balsam and Dr. Pepper cola. Fine and silky in the mouth, with modest alcohol and a burst of cool-climate acidity. A more feminine style of Pinot, which is not to und... Wine Enthusiast. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2009 Fogdog Pinot Noir 750ml
