Windy Oaks Estate
2006 Pinot Noir Estate - Diane's Block
(Santa Cruz Mountains)
An unusual and comely combination of spinach, rhubarb and maraschino cherry aromas. The mouth is achingly dense, with the stone fruit flavors of home-canned black cherries, good acidity and a grappa edge. The combination of whole berry fermentation, extended skin contact and lees stirring produces flavors which linger, excite and satisfy.
