Red Rock Winery Pinot Noir California Reserve 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Clean and fresh if simple on the nose with light cola, smoke and baked berry notes framed with light dried citrus peel and sweet oak notes. This is just a hint chunky in the mouth yet retains nice freshness. It’s actually nicely light/medium weight with a core of slightly milk chocolaty oak sweetened red fruit that’s a lit indistinct yet quite agreeable. The finish shows some raspberry and cherry pit tones with some wood tannin sticking out but nothing that a bit of food wouldn’t take care of. I would like to see a little more acidity here to support the fresh flavors but this is fairly well done. 87pts

Red Rock Winery:
Over the past decade Red Rock has gained an enviable reputation for producing superb ultra premium wines. They are handcrafted on the estate from vines that creep up the side of a dormant volcano west of Geelong. The mineral-rich soil, low rainfall and cool climate result in a unique terroir which, when coupled with sensitive winemaking, yields distinctly individual wines with power and finesse.
