Easily my favorite Fogdog Pinot Noir yet. This wine always shows a lot of liveliness and energy, but the 2009 also seems a deeper and broader wine than previous vintages. Red raspberry and dark cherry fruit with a strong floral edge and a touch of sweet herb like bay leaf or basil. Good dark earthy core.. Drinking perfectly right now. - HK 2012-04-29
