Wyatt Pinot Noir St. Helena 2007
[89 pts Robert Parker] It is virtually impossible to find a high-quality Pinot Noir that actually tastes like Pinot Noir for under $25 but Wyatt accessed a blend of fruit mostly from Carneros with the rest from the Sonoma Coast Russian River Sonoma County Mendocino and even the Central Coast. This wine is a real winner tasting like a delicious Cotes de Beaune. Earthy ripe currant strawberry and spicy notes jump from the glass of this Pinot with a very fragrant sensual style. Medium-bodied with decent acidity ripe tannin and a nice plush mouthfeel this is a rather remarkable wine value for a Pinot Noir which is always a fickle grape as well as expensive to produce. Drink it over the next 2-3 years and buy it by the case.

Winemaker notes:Wyatt is a Polaner Selections custom label that was born from the idea that delicious, mouth-filling wines can be hand-crafted at reasonable prices. Working with several winemakers in California, we make our blends using declassified wine that often sells at a much higher price under other labels. The result: a great value and lots of character for the money.
