2007 Beauregard Bald Mountain Vineyard Estate Grown Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.8% alc., 220 cases, $45. Aged 27 months in French and American oak barrels. · Moderately deep reddish-purple color in the glass. Darkly fruited on the nose and palate with some toasty oak in the background. Added notes of dark rose petals on the nose add interest. Restrained tannins and a pleasing core of fruit that has some persistence on the finish. An herbal oak flavor detracts. Good. Reviewed June 22, 2010
