Au Bon Climat Pinot Noir ‘La Bage Au-dessus’ 2008

SANTA MARIA VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $30

Beautiful strawberry and rhubarb fruit with organic notes of cedar, nutmeg, cardamom and wet earth. Light bodied and deftly restrained, yielding balance that allows a complex soil profile to show through the fruit. Here’s a confident soul with no need for affected flourish to attract admiration. A wine of passion, and a very good one at that. (Reviewed 3/18/12)
