2008 Contrada Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

14.1% alc., $19.99. WW 90. From Michael Pozzan Winery in Oakville. · First bottle: Light reddish-purple color with a slight brickish rim. Volatile acidity upon opening which blows off revealing aromas of overripe, roasted fruit, and prune, mahogany and pharmaceutical cabinet. Woody black cherry flavor, firm tannins, in an elegant, soft style. Rather unpleasant to drink. Unsatisfactory. Second bottle: Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Nondescript nose. Flavors of tar, creosote, rubber, and oak with little fruit. Unpleasant and out of sorts. Surely a smoke tainted wine. Unsatisfactory. Reviewed October 2, 2012 ARTICLE »
