Alma Rosa 2006 Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills

A powerful wine, the Alma Rosa 2006 Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir showcases the darker, more covert aspects of the alluring varietal. Rich fruit flavors and aromas of black cherries and currants are bolstered by a smoky spiciness with essences of spicy mu shu plum sauce, herb and sage. Wrapped into thick but finely ground tannins, this Pinot is brightened by a crisp coastal acidity that lifts it into sheer deliciousness. [+]
