Saintsbury Pinot Noir Carneros Garnet 2010
Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 89 points by Wine Enthusiast: Garnet long has been one of California’s greatest entry-level Pinot Noirs, and it still is. Maybe the best. The ’09 reflects the balanced vintage. It’s a dry, silky, light-bodied wine, with pretty raspberry and cola flavors.
First published in 1920, George Saintsbury’s “Notes on a Cellar-Book” has inspired many to experiment widely and to form opinions unaffected by the fashion of the day. Included in those ranks are Mr. Ward and Mr. Graves, who named their winery in honor of Professor Saintsbury.
