Santa Helena Grand Reserva Pinot Noir 2006

Member Review by Philip James:

Flinty nose of blueberries. Its a very fruity wine, thats balanced by a lot of acidity - this comes across as tart cherries and raspberries, with just a hint of earthiness. The fruit and the acids are extremely vibrant, and the acids come across as prickly. Its, nice, bold and fruity, but a little one dimensional. Finish is on fruits, but a little sweeter after the acid fades away.

This is terrific Pinot Noir: gorgeous garnet hue; effulgent aromas of cherry, leather, underbrush; sweet, full and long on the tongue, with a persistence of red currant and autumnal flavors belying its cost; can't-see-'em tannins end a silky, luxurious texture. Delicious on its own, but would perfect a meal of roast chicken, roast pork or anything that uses mushrooms, especially meaty ones.
