Wild Horse Winery Pinot Noir Central C 2008
Editorial Reviews for Wild Horse Winery Pinot Noir Central C
Warm and ripe with a juicy, roast meaty edge and smoky, little caramelized wood tones Gains freshness in the glass with distinct floral top notes and intense warm black raspberry and ollalieberry notes that gain an exotic persimmon tone. Low acid, rich and soft, dense with a very ripe feel but fresh flavors. A bit of wood tannin is a touch out of balance and a bit too assertive. Very nice minor liquory wild red berry/cranberry flavors, then finishes with a strong herbal/rhubarb vein. Lovely baking spice notes and a touch of watermelon on the finale. A curious wine with a big feel, yet gentle and offering surprisingly fresh flavors. Delicious in a very fruity way. 89pts
The youthful nose is estery and oaky with spice, smoke and licorice tones yet in the mouth this is easy but balanced in a big, acid driven style. It's a fleshy wine with nice flavors that feature a touch of sweet herb and vanilla framing big, sweet fruit. It's a fruit bomb and while not my style is a very appealing and popular style and this should be a big hit with many people. drink 2009-2012 88pts
Nice Pinot Noir, medium bodied, red cherries, medium acidity, not too complex. Decent Pinot for the price.
Fantastic pinot noir!!
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.
Good value PN, suits my taste. I enjoyed the savory, earthy flavors and balance, not too acidic as some PN is for me.
Four and a half glasses

Laely Heron studied in Bordeaux and has lived in Spain, France and California. This pinot noir is fermented in stainless steel them is moved to large French oak barrels. It is classically Californian with dark cherries, plum and vanilla bean, but balanced.
Firm and spicy, with complex plum, mineral, cola, spice and tobacco scents that are full-bodied, firm and lingering. Good value for Pinot. Drink now through 2016.
Bright, ripe, and wonderfully delicate, with a light spiciness that persists throughout. Red berry and cherry flavors immediately appear, followed by delicious cedar notes. The finish is light and airy with elegant, earthy notes, like a bit of underbrush mixed in with the berries. Among our best bargain-priced Pinot Noirs and a wonderfully fresh choice for any holiday meal.
Fruity and a bit one-dimensional, but offers very pretty, polished Pinot Noir character. Feels rich and silky in the mouth, with flavors of raspberries, cherries, cola and spices. Ready now.
