  • Alta Maria Vineyards Santa Maria Valley Pinot Noir 2009

    Snoothrank:

    Zesty, spicy dark fruit. Raspberry, black cherry, pomegranate, plum and even hints of blackberry. Nicely built with good acid and tannin balance. A bit hot on the finish with tart fruit, but time will relax that soon I think.91 pts.9/2/12 at Rancho Ontiveros Read More
