2003 Wild Hog Estate Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

16.1% alc., $25. I tasted the 2005 vintage of this wine as well and it was very similar in style albeit with more refined tannins. · Dark ruby in color. Scents of earth, tobacco, pencil shavings and grass lead off. There is a strong attack of potent ripe fruit tending toward raisin. Aggressive tannins. For fans of big tannic zinfandel-like wines.
