2007 A.P. Vin Rosella’s Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir.

14.9% alc., 375 cases, $40, Stelvin screw cap. Clones 777, 115 and Pisoni. Aged 11 months in 40% new French oak. Unfined and unfiltered. · Enticing scents of perfectly ripe cherries and berries with side car notes of oak and spice. A cherry bombast in the mouth that literally explodes on entry, well-clothed in ripe tannins and bright acidity. The aromatic finish lasts and lasts. A seamless wine with the most finesse of all the wines in this lineup. Fantastic the next day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. The quarterback in the lineup: good-looking, clean, smart and demands the focus of attention. Reviewed November 13, 2009
