2009 Sea Smoke "Southing" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1076772 92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Pretty aromas of ripe strawberries and citrus character. It shows a beautiful purity of fruit on the palate with very fine tannins and a long silky finish. Pretty acidity too. Firm. Inner quote mark (12/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep violet color. Intense, oak-spiced aromas of dark berries, cherry liqueur, potpourri and woodsmoke. Deeply pitched black raspberry and cherry cola flavors show good breadth, surprising vivacity and a silky texture (this has a low pH of 3.3, by the way), with notes of candied lavender and sassafras coming up with aeration. In a ripe but energetic style, finishing with very good cling and lingering spiciness. (JR) Inner quote mark (10/2011)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sea Smoke's 2009 Pinot Noir Southing is gorgeous. It possesses striking textural depth and finesse. Juicy dark cherries, licorice, spices and flowers take shape beautifully as the wine fleshes out in the glass. The finish turns a bit fleeting as floral elements become more pronounced, but this is still a very pretty, nuanced Pinot. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2012)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Complex aromatics, tighter on the palate. Fresh and snappy, with a loamy earth edge to the dried berry, crushed rock and spicy-peppery scents, ending with cleansing acidity. (JL, Web Only-2012) Inner quote mark
