Tondre Wines
2008 Pinot Noir - Tondre Grapefield
(Santa Lucia Highlands)

Very dark color. Bright orange peel and spiced cherry complexed by dry earth. Full and lively -- a riot of explosive, intense fruit. Tannins are very fine, oily and feminine, filing the mouth. Very typical of the region, with classy structure, fine poise and considerable ageability.
