Pali Wine Co. Pinot Noir Monterey Santa Barbara 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Pali "Riviera" Pinot Noir features a bright bouquet of plum, fresh raspberries, wild blackberries, coriander, lavender, iron and cinnamon. The palate is rich and full with black fruits intertwined with fresh raspberry, black pepper and wet stone that resonate in a fanning finish of sweet red currant and dark chocolate.

Rating: 87/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the October 2010 issue. Although Pali's pricier offerings derive from single sites of real note, it turns out in 2008 that the winery's best wine is also its cheapest and bears the name of no famous place. Frontal and juicy and fixed on focused, cherry-like fruit, this bottling is also a bit lush in feel, but it shows balancing acidity right where it should, and its ripeness is reigned in to the benefit of its fruity expression.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Drinkable now. Further bottle aging can improve this wine.
