This elegant, feminine-style Pinot Noir has a beguiling perfume of ripe cherry and rose blossom with subtle spicy overtones. Nicely structured and slightly firm in texture with an impressive depth of flavor not totally suggested in the aromas. Submerged notes of cola and earthiness add to the complexity. Like all Greenwood Ridge wines, balanced, restrained, and never tiring to the palate. And in today's crazy Pinot Noir market, $30 is a deal. Extra bonus: one of the most aesthetically attractive bottles on the market. - HK 2009-01-18
