2012 Windy Oaks "Estate Cuvee" Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir (750ml)15 2 0 0
Great nose of rhubarb, cranberry, bright red cherry, and hints of unripe strawberry along with tiny bits of clove and tea. On the palate, light bodied at first but filled nicely as it got air. Lots of tart red fruit including pie cherry, red raspberry, and bits of spice. Racy tart finish but a sneaky grip. Different from past vintages, I really like the restrained use of oak here. Not sure where this is going to go but I really like it now.
