96pointsAu Bon Climat 2010 Historic Vineyards Collection Bien Nacido Vineyard Pinot Noir (Santa Maria Valley)

Editors' Choice

This Pinot Noir is insanely delicious. The wine is dry, tart and moderate in alcohol, giving it the smooth silkiness you want in a fine Pinot. The flavors are something else, striking the perfect balance between ripe raspberries, earthy cola, red licorice and mushrooms, with all kinds of spicy complexities. The acid-tannin balance is impeccable. It's drinking beautifully now and should hold and change in the bottle over the next eight years.
