Wild Horse Unbridled Pinot Noir Arroyo Grande Valley 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Sweetly fruity and toasty on the nose. This is all about wild berry fruit but with nicely layered herbal and floral aromas all over lots of toasty spice. A little thick on entry but the bright acidity quickly snaps everything into place. Very supple and easy drinking with a nice crème caramel background note over which is laid fresh, rich black cherry and plummy fruit. This a crowd pleasing style with no rough edges and intense, if relatively simple flavors. The finish shows a nice lingering black cherry tones that is nice and dry and quite long. 88pts
