V. Sattui Winery Pinot Noir Carneros Henry Ranch 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

A little sweet on the nose, with deep cherry pie-filling notes framed by rosemary, vanilla, and very gentle wood spice. This is bright and firm on entry with very fine-grained tannins that add tension to the palate. This is a bit monotone -- all about the dark cherry fruit with slight shadings of wood spice and those tannins helping to back up the fruit. The finish is a bit clipped by the tannins here, which are fairly drying. A solid Pinot but one that comes off as slightly clumsy, if rich and full. 88pts

We've got a good one here. Cherries and tar on the nose with a bright medium-spiced body. There's tea, chocolate, eucalyptus, and pepper. The finish is a bit medicinal, but hey.
