A stunning Pinot Noir, and a worthy followup to Drew's 2006 bottling. Interestingly, the official alcohol is nearly 1% lower at no loss of ripeness, a testimony to the success of the vintage. Offers everything you want in a fine coastal Pinot: crisp acidity, a dry, silky mouthfeel, refined tannins, complexity and ageability. The flavors include red cherries and currants, cola, sassafras, red licorice and Asian spices. Great now and through 2013.
