Hilliard Bruce 2011 Earth Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

The winery says this is their earliest-picked fruit, which explains why the wine is leaner and earthier than their other bottlings. You'll find mushroom and green herb notes alongside the raspberries and cherries. Whether or not this extends the wine's ageability is arguable, but it does make it less appealing than, say, their Sun or Sky bottlings, which are riper.
