Thomas Fogarty 2004 Rapley Trail Vineyard B Block Pinot Noir (Santa Cruz Mountains)

A very big Pinot, obviously chosen for its special designation due to the concentration of fruit. Almost Grenache-like in cherries, cassis, cocoa and glyceriney richness, it's a dry, silky wine whose elaborate oak finishings add opulence. Despite the Loire-like weight, it's a compelling Pinot that evolves as it warms in the glass, suggesting ageability. Drink now–2010.
