La Vie Pinot Noir ‘Pretty in Pinot’ 2007


Soft, mature Bing cherry and raspberry plus notes of pomegranate and rhubarb, integrated with earthy flavors of cedar, organic soil, dry leaves and tar. Suggestions of camphor and caramel, and a pinpoint of citrus pith breaking through just as the finish comes on. Nicely structured, medium bodied with a satin texture and a nice chew. Anecdotal evidence suggests this one may be more alcoholic than the 14.5% ABV as labeled. Pretty, she says. Seductive, she is. A headache, she’ll be. A very good wine. (Reviewed 8/4/12)
