Saudade 2008 La Encantada Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sta. Rita Hills)

Tough, dry and gritty in tannins and acids, a young, fresh wine with jammy raspberry, cherry, buttered oak and spice flavors. Tastes a bit direct, like a fruit cola drink. But there's an elegant purity and inherent finesse that suggest this Pinot Noir might do interesting things over the next six years. Could improve dramatically.
