2009 Queen of Hearts Santa Barbara County Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $12.29. Nice package. · Light reddish-purple color in the glass. Charming aromas of strawberries, cranberries, balsam, red hard candy and spice fading some over time in the glass. Light, even dilute, with cherries featured. Hints of strawberries, vanillin and sandalwood add interest. Alcohol peaks out on the finish. An easy drinker that has enough charm to hold your attention. Decent (+). Reviewed November 2, 2011
