Big Basin 2012 Alfaro Family Vineyards Pinot Noir (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Black cherry fruit gets serious with elements of slate, eucalyptus, tar and wild mint on this wine from the Corralitos area at the southern coastal edge of the appellation. It's soft at first on the palate, then reveals a wash of acidity, with sour cherry fruit and black tea tannins. Matt Kettmann
