Claiborne & Churchill Pinot Noir Central Coast 2007
Aromas of wild berries leap from the glass, and layers of raspberries, dark strawberries and cherries all burst onto your palate. This Pinot Noir has it all. Rich and velvety, backed by soft, smooth tannins with a hint of oak.
A seductive bouquet of violets in the nose, a wallop of cherries-and-berries on the palate, a nice touch of good wood, and a long and elegant finish. Like all our reds from 2007, it has great color and good body, without being over-the-top dense and dark as some California Pinots can be.
