2006 Brookside Cellars Moon Hill Vineyard Marin County Pinot Noir Barrel Sample

80 cases. This is a new producer that specializes in small lots of Pinot Noir from select vineyards in Marin and Sonoma Counties. The Moon Hill Vineyard is in the hills of Nicasio, above the San Geronimo Valley. Winemaker Tim Crowe is a native of Marin County and a graduate of the University of California Davis. His resume includes stints at Arrowood, BR Cohn, and Pezzi King. · The barrel sample is quite decent but still a little un-evolved. The core of dusty red cherry fruit is capped off with the right touch of acidity. Reviewed July 16, 2007
