(from declassified fruit from Thomas Brown's Sonoma Coast sites): Good medium red. Complex, rather Burgungian aromas of strawberry, raspberry, rose petal and earth, with hints of smoke and sandalwood. At once silky and juicy in the mouth, with enticing red fruit flavors framed by ripe acidity and complicated by smoke and earth. This rather delicate pinot finishes with suave tannins and good grip. A steal at the price.

The 2010 Pinot Noir is a ridiculous wine for the money. A burst of dark red fruit, flowers, spices and licorice are some of the notes that burst from the glass in this juicy, totally enjoyable Pinot. This is one of the very finest Pinots being made anywhere in the world at this price point. Kudos to Thomas Rivers Brown for making a delicious Pinot at a very fair and friendly price.
