2009 Mary Elke Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.3% alc., $18. · Moderately deep reddish-purple color in the glass. Lovely mix of berry and candied black cherry aromas with added subtle notes of dried rose petals and potpourri. Very tasty with an impressive mid palate attack of spicy black cherry and Hoison sauce flavor, offering some persistence of cherry fruit on the dry finish. Medium-weighted, sweet, ripe and forward, with supple tannins and supporting acidity. Impressive wine at this price point. Very good. Reviewed November 2, 2011
