2008 W.H. Smith "Hellenthal Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir (Previously $40)

SKU #1311684 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Released at the age of one year, which is disappointing as the wine will surely gain in the bottle. It's young and acidic and fruity, with complex waves of cherries, red currants, beef tartare, sautéed wild mushrooms with a splash of soy and balsamic, orange zest, pepper and the sweet sandalwood of smoky oak. Very fine, but needs at least a year in the bottle. Inner quote mark (12/2009)

K&L Notes

A number of small, high-quality producers have made wine from the Hellenthal vineyard in recent years. Called by Antonio Galloni "one of the most highly regarded spots on the Sonoma Coast," it's located in the "true" or far Sonoma Coast near Fort Ross, and, unusually, the original block was planted in 1980 to own-rooted Calera clone Pinot.
