Heady red fruits and spices on the nose with suggestions of potpourri and sandalwood in the background. Silky seamless and very sweet offering deep raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of cinnamon. Very suave and alluring with excellent finishing clarity and sappy persistence. -Josh Raynolds

The 2008 Pinot Noir Mount Carmel (14.8%) exhibits plenty of black cherry and strawberry notes with hints of lead pencil shavings Chinese black tea and earth. Dark ruby medium to full-bodied with a striking minerality this is among the tightest knit and most structured and backward of the 2008 Pinots. One senses that everything is trying to burst the seams beneath its structured veneer. Give it 1-2 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-15. 92+

This vineyard typically displays a dark opaque color but the current vintage indicates some elegance and finesse may be coming down the pike with a fading bright garnet rim. Intense with Santa Barbara's typical crushed berry aromas atop soft yet concentrated woodsy dark cherry. The medium-full palate is bright and elegant compared to previous years. The acids are integrated and balanced giving the wine a long fruit centered finish.
