2006 Clos La Chance Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $22. This winery is located in San Martin, about 45 minutes from the Santa Cruz Mountains but the owners, Bill and Brenda Murphy, farm a number of small vineyards in the Mountains. · Demure aromas of cherries, strawberries and fresh mowed grass. Moderately light flavors of tart red cherry and strawberry with a faint kiss of oak. Silky tannins and admirable finesse. Reviewed March 15, 2009
