2011 Wildcat Mountain Vineyard, Sonoma Coast
This vintage is amazing for Pinot Noir! And Wildcat Vineyard gives us wines of tremendous complexity, minerality, restrained fruit and fabulousness. Not much left! We highly recommend stashing a few bottles.
There’s a lot going on in this wine – Plum, cherry, earthy and aromatic pipe tobacco, a little toasty barrel note, iodine, mushroom, and a hint of moist redwood forest. It’s an interesting and complex wine. On top of this, there’s a compelling hint of the savory flavor of shoyu on the palate. Texturally, the wine is round in the mid-palate and slides into a graceful, persistent finish.
