Ken Brown Pinot Noir 2008

SANTA MARIA VALLEY | CALIFORNIA | $35
An aromatic wine, full of savory spice and wood notes that keep pace with black cherry, raspberry and boysenberry fruit. Well-integrated flavors of rhubarb, cardamom, allspice, organic soil, cedar and mint make for a complex wine with horizontal fullness. Medium bodied with a firm, rich texture — satin-like with some tooth. More than a simple sum of its component parts, this effort nets an intricate profile that delivers a magical “something else.” It’s how a gathering of personalities becomes a soirée. 64% Garey Vineyard, 36% Nielson Vineyard. A very good wine. (Reviewed 11/10/12)
