Nice Pinot Noir, medium bodied, red cherries, medium acidity, not too complex. Decent Pinot for the price.

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!).

Wild Horse captures the essence of Central Coast Pinot. The wine isn't especially complex or ageable, but defines the fruit and acid balance of the region. Cherries, black raspberries, root beer and spiced rum punch are the flavors, and the wine is silky and dry.

This is complex, displaying a mix of ripe cherry and raspberry flavors, with mineral and loamy earth notes that have a savory herb edge. Full-bodied, focused and long on the finish, with the right mix of acidity and tannins. Drink now through 2012.

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.

An eight-vineyard blend of 20,000 cases or so, Wild Horse's Central coast Pinot is an admirable effort, blending forward fruit (black cherries) with darker, earthier notes of cola and spice. Light-bodied and silky-textured, drink it over the next year or so.

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.
