2008 Harrington Iund Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., pH 3.41, 100 cases, $35. Martini clone. Aged 10 months in 20% new French oak barrels. · Moderately intense reddish-purple hue in the glass. A wonderful potpourri of ripe dark berries accented by notes of spice, dark chocolate and oak. The fruit is strikingly vivid and is encased in silky, fine-grain tannins. There are plenty of oak-derived flavors here but they compliment the fruit nicely. The whole package is very soft in the mouth and finishes on a very clean note. Very Good.
