2008 Aubert "UV Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1070390 96 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark This beautifully crafted wine offers fragrant, floral plum, blueberry and wild berry that are supple and graceful, delicate and persistent. A velvety aftertaste echoes black licorice and sandalwood. *Highly Recommended* (JL) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark My favorite effort in this entire Pinot Noir portfolio is the 2008 Pinot Noir UV Vineyard, a blend of equal parts Calera and the Vosne-Romanee suitcase clones. Its deep ruby/plum color is accompanied by sweet aromas of beef blood, damp earth, spring flowers, raspberries, cola and black cherries. Full-bodied, concentrated and rich with silky tannins as well as good acidity, it should drink nicely for 7-10 years. (RP) Inner quote mark (2/2011)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Full medium red, less bright than the Rueling. More aromatic nose offers blue fruits and violet. Fat, sweet and broad, with very ripe flavors of blueberry liqueur, black tea and earth. I wanted a bit more verve and floral lift but this very long wine shows better fruit sweetness on the very long finish than the Rueling. Aubert did an extended maceration on the skins in 2008 , which he believes has given his wines more gras But I wonder if this added textural richness has come at the expense of some verve. Both of these wines are aged in 100% new oak, mostly barrels from Francois Freres, Remond and Damy. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2010)
