90pointsMcIntyre Vineyards 2008 Estate Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands)

Inky dark, full-bodied, dry and, in a word, huge. That's this Pinot, which shows typical Santa Lucia power. Densely concentrated in raspberry, cherry and blackberry fruit, it's strong in tannins, but they're velvety soft. An interesting wine, not particularly Pinot-esque, but delicious and possibly ageworthy.
