Laetitia Winery Pinot Noir Arroyo Grande Valley Estate Block Q 2008

Member Review by BasilNew:

My rating is for Pinot's under $30. A smokey plum, slight earthy whiff, along with with a slightly dangerous acidity...puts it close to the pure Burgundian model. Lots happening here...lots of complexity for a pinot in this price range.

Here's a Pinot that delivers plenty of upfront cherry fruit to the palate, but maintains a dignified elegance and lightness of body. The fruit flavors are complexed by oak, while high acidity adds a clean minerality. Finishes with a real stamp of quality.

Good deep red-ruby. Aromas of dark raspberry and dark chocolate. Sweet, creamy and easygoing, with smooth flavors of raspberry and smoke. Finishes with very soft tannins and hints of smoke and chocolatey oak.

Ripe, with very good depth to stewed currant, wild berry and plum flavors. round, solid tannins and generous toasty oak notes linger on the finish. Drink now through 2007.

Soft and heavy and very ripe, with jammy blackberry, cherry, raspberry, plum and cola flavors. New oak adds sweet, smoky barrel notes. Almost Rhône-like in weight, it should knit together and become more elegant in a year or two.

Tough and weedy, this is Laetitia's least Pinot Noir, although it does show fine Central Coast firmness and dryness. Satisfies for its cherry and licorice flavors, enhanced with smoky sandalwood. Drink now.

A blend of 10 different Pinot Noir clones on the Laetitia property, this wine is an elegant expression of the ideal Pinot Noir growing conditions that define the Central Coast of California.

Elegant and complex, a perfect blending of dark fruit notes with lighter elements of violets and herbs. There are many layers here, as there should be in a Pinot Noir of this caliber. Lots of good things going on - perfect balance, lush fruit and a long spicy finish - all the marks of a well-made wine.
