2010 Pali Riviera Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast

Pali Wine Company Pinot Noir was a purchase on Lot 18 a few weeks ago. The winery located in Lompoc Ca was created in 2005 by Tim Perr and Scott Knight as both were passionate about producing small lots of artisan Pinot Noir.

On the nose ripe cherry and cranberry with a huge clove note. As I allowed the wine to open cinnamon spice and a hint of earth. There is this amazing level of richness with each sniff.

The mouth is full of dark cherry, tart cranberry and blackberry. The earthy cinnamon warms me and compliments the fruit perfectly. As I continue to taste the blackberry becomes more pronounced. Wonderful flavor and very appealing. $22 and well worth the money and a screw cap closure.

I haven't had the 2010 vintage of this wine but I've enjoyed other vintages. If you look around hard enough, you can find it under the magical $20 level.
