Wine Review: Taz Vineyards, Pinot Noir, Santa Rita Hills, Fiddlestix Vineyard 2004

Tax 2004 Fiddelstix, Another Taz Favorite
This wonderful wine has a silky deep flavor of blackberries and dark cherries with floral aromas. The palate is strongly focused with good acidity and ripe underlying fruit. 2004 had a late season heat wave and was a year of big Pinots. So, this is a big Pinot, 15.1 % alcohol, that is concentrated and intense with a bold finish. It is not alcoholic tasting or jammy, this is not a Syrah Pinot, at least we do not think so. We both like it a lot! A real treat.

My Rating; 91
