Whitcraft Pinot Noir Bien Nacido Vineyard N Block 2004

SANTA MARIA VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $35

A full-bodied Pinot showing soft dark berry fruit with notes of cedar, tobacco, bay, cola and wet stone. A very good wine but unnaturally acidic. Perhaps if opened better 18 months earlier, the fruit would be a bit more prominent and the wine better balanced. Something of cranky character, this, but one whose charm in youth earns a pass. A good wine. (Reviewed 10/30/10)
