1999 Brutocao Pinot Noir Feliz Vineyard Block #54
Mendocino, California
WB Rating: 86

Alcohol by volume: 14.9%
Price at time of purchase: $24.00 (from winery)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

Piercing nose of sweet cherry and plums with some earthiness and a rose petal component. Hides its alcohol, as do many Mendocino reds, behind a soft and pleasing texture. Rich in the mouth, but without the complexity of a higher-level Pinot. Very drinkable at this stage, with no rough edges. Fairly priced for the quality. - HK 2001-11-06
