Good value PN, suits my taste. I enjoyed the savory, earthy flavors and balance, not too acidic as some PN is for me. Read more

This is a nice PN, especially for the central coast. It is true to the grape in that it seems to express terroir nicely. Also faithful to the pinot tradition, I get a barnyard note on the nose. I'd agree with GDP's wood tannin comment, though I don't feel it is unwelcome. Overall an earthy wine with plenty of balance to serve as a nice dinner wine when you don't want to drop the big bucks.

Wild Horses might not be able to drag you away from this extremely well priced gem that has ALWAYS been good, even before Central Coast Pinot Noir was all the rage. Black cherry, Pepsi, exotic spice and red berries form the foundation of this smoothly textured red. Great with a host of savory foods.

Aromas of sandalwood, oriental spice and ripe berry. On the palate the wine has flavors of raspberry and rhubarb, with a subtle finish.

Light and easy, and made for drinking now. Shows plenty of charm, with dry, crisp flavors of herbs, red currants, tobacco and spices, wrapped into scoury tannins.

Medium-bodied, with aromas of alpine forest floor, cinnamon, clove and blackberry. On the palate, this wine displays flavors of black cherry, strawberry and kola nut with a creamy mouthfeel and elegant finish. Enjoy with your favorite grilled chicken recipe.

Wild Horse, named for the Spanish mustangs that roam free east of the estate, is a consistently good wine with more than 25 years of experience. Aged in French oak, Wild Horse exhibits aromas of dried cherries, cola and aged wood with a hint of spice. Once it enters the mouth, magnificent pomegranate and Asian spice take over. This is a super food-friendly wine that goes remarkably well with fried livers, Cuban pork with black beans or pepper crusted ahi tuna with roasted eggplant. The fun is in the pairing; try your favorite dish and experience umami (Asians believe it is when all four senses come together and create a fifth sense!).

A pretty wine in a lighter style, with earth and mocha accents adorning its lean cherry and plum fruit. Itrsquo;s bright and even, and though the fruit is lively, the mouthfeel is supple. It finishes dry, with pleasant herb notes.

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Wild Horse Pinot Noir Central Coast is full of aromas and flavors of fresh strawberries, forest floor, and hints of vanilla from 100% oak aging. Food Pairing: Pair this hand crafted wine with rotisserie pork loin or cedar plank salmon.
