2009 Castello di Amorosa Pinot Nero

14.6% alc., $36. 65% Anderson Valley grapes and 35% Santa Lucia Highlands grapes. · Moderate reddish-purple color in the glass. Open and forward aromas of black cherries and humus. Tasty essence of black cherries with hints of praline and cola. Plenty of upfront charm with well proportioned, sturdy tannins and bright acidity on the uplifting finish. Solid the next day from a previously opened and re-corked bottle. Very good. Reviewed November 2, 2011
