2009 Failla Sonoma Coast Estate Pinot Noir
This was my first time tasting a wine from this producer, and I'm already a big fan. This wine shows lovely Sonoma
Coast aromas of sweet cherries, brambles, a hint of smoke and lavender. The palate displays silky tannins, bright fruit and an overall sense of focus and
balance that is really attractive. Rich cherries and just a bit of mocha on the
finish. Very good stuff. I ordered this bottle at Ripple in DC and it went really well
with a delicious pork tenderloin dish.
