2006 August West "Rosella's Vineyard" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (Previously $48)

SKU #1037008 90 points Vinous

 Medium red. Intensely floral bouquet offers spicy red berries, smoked meat and tangy orange peel. Energetic and juicy, with fresh, sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and silky texture. Becomes more tannic with air, finishing with good firmness and sappy persistence. Interesting stuff, and sure to reward a few years of patience. (JR) 90+  (11/2008)

K&L Notes

This may be August West's best Rosella's yet, evocative of this incredible site (and source of some of the most sought-after pinots on the market) in the Santa Lucia Highlands. Intriguing spicy fruit charms on the nose and continues onto the palate, which is juicy with rhubarb, berry and cola flavors, balanced by natural acidity and a hint of toast on the finish. Hold onto this one until the end of 2008 and then enjoy it for the next 5-7 years.
