2006 Stephen Vincent Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
13.6% alc., $18. Sourced from the Four Sisters Vineyard on the Sonoma Coast. · Light in color, light in the mouth, and very silky. Flavors of red fruits, primarily cherry, with a grassy edge. Kept wanting more, but can’t complain for the price. Reviewed April 7, 2008 ARTICLE »
