Deep and forward fruit really make this a delight to drink.

Slowly unfolding its savory herb, cola, wild berry and spice attributes, this gains depth and nuance, ending with a pleasing mix of complex flavors. Drink now through 2016. – JL

The 2009 Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast which is a blend from two sites Rodgers Creek and Keller Estate is another wine made from the modern clones 115 777 667 as well as the older Pommard selection. More sassafras/rootbeer notes intermixed with herbs flowers and berry fruit make for a complex cool-climate impression aromatically and a good fleshy medium to full-bodied mouthfeel with more spice and earthiness jump from the glass. Winemaker Erich Bradley seems to have the Midas touch with the beautifully opulent round and generous texture he builds into these wines without any sense of weightiness. Purity and nicely integrated wood tannin and acidity are also admirable. This wine should drink well for 5-6 years. 90+

Light garnet hue. The alluring nose of cherry and brown spice eases into a mélange of ripe strawberry rhubarb and pomegranate with a backdrop of clove and cinnamon while fruit and mouthwatering acidity meld on the balanced and lingering finish. Drinking well in its youth this will continue to bring enjoyment with another 2 to 3 years of cellar time.
