Philo Ridge Anderson Valley Pinot Noir, 2010

I have had many excellent Pinot Noir wines from the Anderson Valley, but this has to rank high on the list. At  10 years of age, it shows no sign of decline any time soon.

Medium light color typical of many clones of Pinot Noir. This may also be an indication that the wine has not seen heavy oak treatment. Glorious Pinot scents that keep me coming back for sniffs again and again. The bouquet is almost worth the price of admission. But there is also plenty to like on the palate. Cherries, dark spices, black pepper. Perfect. Great balance and long after taste.
