2005 Sonnet Tondre’s Grapefield Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir

14.5% alc.. Bottled 10 days ago. A mix of Pommard and a little 777 clone. · The nose offers the smell of fresh-crushed red grapes with a touch of chocolate. A masculine wine with more intensity than the Muns Vineyard bottling. Flavors are more earthy, like a trip in the forest. Again, the velvety texture is Pinot Noir at its best. This beauty finishes with a touch of oak, lively acid, and a hint of heat, all features that will blend and soften with aging. Reviewed April 1, 2007
