2007 A.P. Vin Kanzler Vineyard Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

15.2% alc., 250 cases, $40, Stelvin screw cap. Clones 667 (10% whole cluster) and Pommard. Aged 11 months in 50% new French oak. Unfined and unfiltered. · Intriguing aromas of black fruits, Moroccan spices, cedar, earth and brier patch. The least forthcoming wine in the lineup with copious and brooding dark fruit. Begins to open with time in the glass revealing an intense plum fruit finish. Little nuance now, but has amazing fruit and will get much better over time. The fullback in the lineup: muscular, hard headed, imposing. Very good (+). Reviewed November 13, 2009
