Flying Goat Pinot Noir Rancho Santa Rosa 2008

SANTA RITA HILLS | CALIFORNIA | $45
Black cherry fruit with Kadoda fig and dark berry notes with flavors of cedar, nutmeg, rhubarb, soil and chalk. Nicely textured with a slight tooth, medium bodied, fairly big for a Pinot, well balanced and complex with soil elements keeping pace with fruit. Bright, easy acidity brings a lively, agile quality. There’s a lot going on here, and one would be remiss to pre-judge this child on girth alone. A very good wine. (Reviewed 1/20/13)
