2004 Loma Prieta Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 44 cases, $50. The grapes come from the Corralitos area of the Santa Cruz Mountains. · This is a big-styled wine in the sense of prodigious fruit, but it has a silky texture and soft mouth feel. The attractive aromatics feature black cherry, wet leaves, toast, and a hint of Jolly Rancher red candy. Flavors tend toward the earthy side with mushroom prominent. Plenty of ripe dark fruit coats the palate. The finish is a little warm, but there are nice oak and bittersweet chocolate memories. Reviewed April 1, 2007
