2010 Skywalker Estate Marin County Pinot Noir

14.5% alc. $70. From George Lucas’ Skywalker Ranch in west Marin County farmed by Mark Pasternak. Winemaker Scott McLeod. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Aromas of plum sauce, fresh berries, brewed tea and cut flowers. Impressive richness of flavor featuring discreetly concentrated darker stone fruits and berries, balanced dry tannins, and a pleasant sheen of oak. The most impressive feature of this wine, and always a badge of greatness, is the long finish that returns for several encores. Very good. Reviewed June 23, 2013
