W.H. Smith 2009 Hellenthal Vineyard Pinot Noir (Sonoma Coast)

Cellar Selection

A young, vigorous Pinot that should reward some time in the cellar. Right now, it's strong in acidity and fairly tannic despite the light texture. The flavors are interesting and complex, with not just ripe red cherries as well as all kinds of wild notes of herb tea, anise, grilled mushrooms, pine needles and persimmons. Drink this fascinating wine as it slowly changes over the next eight years.
