2008 Ghostwriter Aptos Creek Vineyard Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.2% alc., $40. · Moderately dark purple color in the glass. Perfume of plum pudding, cardamon and oak spice. Riper, sappy fruit flavors of black plums, plum sauce and blackberries in a medium to full-bodied style. Admirable finesse and smoothness on the palate with moderate tannins, complimentary oak and some persistence on the finish. Source: website and retail. Good (+). Reviewed July 1, 2011
