2009 Sea Slopes Pinot Noir Accolades
★★★★½ EXCELLENT - Restaurant Wine, Ronn Wiegand MW/MS
Excellent - The Sea Slopes bottling is fragrant and full bodied, with fine character (red currant, plum, rose petal) and overtones of toast, and modest oak. Aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 20% new. 809 cases.
90 Points - Wine Enthusiast
Fruit is the star of this wine. It’s gigantic and forward in sweet raspberry and cherry flavors that taste wild, picked under a hot summer sun. Fortunately, there’s a lot of acidity, and firm tannins provide additional structure. The finish is thoroughly dry. A bit in your face now, but could do interesting things over the years. —S.H.
