93pointsKings Mountain 2011 Estate Grown Pinot Noir (Santa Cruz Mountains)

Editors' Choice

Generally, some bottle age improves Pinot Noir by leaps and bounds, so 2011s like this are firing right now. In this bottling, from a longtime winery near Woodside just south of San Francisco, brings concentrated aromas of cherry-cola, crème brûlée and blackberry-vanilla purée. A soft creamy palate full of oregano, thyme, black cherry, graphite and pine needle precedes a mentholated finish. Matt Kettmann
