Writer's Block Pinot Noir Mendocino County 2008
Wine Tasting Notes A medium bodied Pinot Noir, with good complexity of aromatics and a supple mouth-feel, while bright acidity finishes dry. Red cherry fruit is very youthful and bright, complex aromatics including linger into a kind of perfume like weight and expanse with time. Consistent depth of fruit through mouth-feel to dry finish with acidic cleanse, when retro nasal aromatics mix and pleasurably close a complete circle from initial aromatic departure.

There is no loss of words for this generous Pinot Noir from Santa Barbara. The dark brick hue of this wine prophesizes deep flavors that are sure to satiate the most fanatical of pinot pundits. Aromas of candied bing cherries, brown sugar and spice suggests that this wine is all Pinot Noir, but on the pallet the 2008 Writer's Block Pinot Noir has more body and texture than typical Pinots. This wine offers up juicy cherry and raspberry flavors with hints of cinnamon and tobacco. The mouth feel is round and supple, and finishes with soft tannins.
