2007 Zepaltas Suacci Vineyard Pinot Noir

I didn't realize at the time when I tasted this wine that it was only a small 145 case production. There's something so special about drinking single vineyard wines that only a few people in the world have the opportunity to experience each vintage.

This wine is 100% Pinot noir made from clones 777 and 115. It was aged in 38% new French oak for a total of 11 months.

On the nose I get aromas of strawberry, mineral, herb, concrete, and wild raspberries. On the palate the wine is drinking exceptionally elegant and soft. It was opened the night before and is drinking beautifully. Flavors of cherry, raspberry, and soft herbal notes grace the palate with bracing acidity and superb balance. 92+ points
