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.

An eight-vineyard blend of 20,000 cases or so, Wild Horsersquo;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.

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. Shows plenty of charm, with dry, crisp flavors of herbs, red currants, tobacco and spices, wrapped into scoury tannins.

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.

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.

Wild Horse captures the essence of Central Coast Pinot. The wine isnrsquo;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.

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.
