2006 Silver Mountain Vineyards Miller Hill Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

13.7% alc., $38. Aged 16 months in 70% tight-grained Hungarian oak, and 30% seasoned French oak. · The scent is a bit funky showing dry cherry, green herbs, brioche and oak. Picking up intensity in the glass, the flavors tend toward sour cherry and cranberry with a hint of citrus on the finish. A light-boned wine that needs food accompaniment. Reviewed March 15, 2009
