2009 Carr Pinot Noir, Kessler-Haak Vineyard, Sta. Rita Hills
Medium-deep ruby color; complex, pretty aromas of black plum, pepper and toasty oak; deep, ripe, black cherry and plum flavors with earthy, smoky notes; some tannin and oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Deep, complex Pinot with a lot going on! Needs time to open up and will definitely reward a few years in your cellar.
