Bright red. Spicy red berries and cherry on the nose, with a light touch of cracked pepper. Dusty and firm, with dried red berry flavors, silky tannins and a dry finish. Not bad.
I have always taken pride in offering good, serious (well a little serious anyway) wine for a reasonable price. The 2008 Tobiano is definitely a little serious, with loads of ripe raspberry, strawberry and cherry pie flavors and aromas as well as the usual “gout de Casablanca,” which I often call a savory or mineral or smoky note. It is this savory note that I think lends a little seriousness to the wine, and separates it from the more straightforwardly fruity Pinot Noirs that I work with here at home in California. It is a fairly big wine, and like all the Kingston reds, it will benefit from a little air. But I would say that it is more a wine for enjoying now, while it is youthful and fresh, than it is for laying down. ¡Salud!
