2009 Damian Ray Doctor’s Vineyard Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
14.3% alc., $39. Crafted under the direction of Jon Tarabini. · Moderately light reddish-purple color in the glass. Pleasant perfume of strawberries, spice and red hard candy. A fruity, somewhat simple wine with a core of red berries and red cherries. Soft in the mouth with bright acidity, restrained tannins and a hint of alcoholic heat on the finish. Good.
