2009 Hilliard Bruce "Sun" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir (Previously $55)

SKU #1087832 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Pinot Noir Sun is a decidedly more muscular, powerful wine than the 2009 Pinot Noir Moon tasted alongside it. Rich dark fruit, spices and sweet French oak fill out the broad-shouldered frame in convincing fashion. (AG) Inner quote mark (8/2011)

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cherry-cola, black raspberry and vanilla bean pick up spiciness and a sexy note of potpourri with air. A more powerful expression of pinot than the graceful Moon bottling, but with no less elegance and complexity. Sappy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors show very good clarity, thanks to a solid spine of acidity. Finishes with excellent thrust and grip, repeating the cherry and spice notes. Give this some bottle age. (JR) 91+ Inner quote mark (11/2011)

K&L Notes

Hilliard Bruce Wines is made by consulting winemaker, Paul Lato. Paul gets some huge scores for his own wines and the Hilliard Bruce wines have received some nice accolades too. A fragrant nose of red and black wild berries, cranberries, wildflowers, clove, and fresh forest. This has a wonderful mouthfeel, round and silky on the palate, this is rich yet elegant. Flavors of pomegranate, cranberries, black cherries lead to a long, complex finish.
