Sineann Resonance Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009
A magical combination of site, varietal, micro-climate, enlightened vineyard practices and meticulous winemaking came together again in 2009 to produce this sensational wine. Dark, rich and complex, the wine has a remarkable palate-coating quality.
Generally considered the best of the best single vineyard Pinots from Sineann, this new Resonance is--to quote the late, great Robert Palmer--simply irresistible. Fresh fruit flavors of strawberry, raspberry, sweet cherry and more roll into a lingering aftermath with nuances of cinnamon, cola, chocolate, nougat, coconut and caramel. None of this is overwhelming; the fruit rules. But the finesse and length, which sneaks up on you, are impressive.
Plush, deep and complex, yet light on its feet, offering a mouthful of mineral-accented cherry, raspberry, green tea and spice flavors that sail smoothly and serenely over refined tannins. This has richness with moderate weight. Drink now through 2019. 900 cases made.
