2009 Cazar Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

This wine is the sister label to Bill Hunter's Chasseur label and is a beautiful representation of Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir in it's purist form. I really haven't tasted purity of fruit like this since last tasting a bottle of Kosta Browne Kanzler a few years back or by tasting the wines made by Chad Melville. This wine is seriously like a bowl of fruit and is absolutely delicious. If you want want unadulterated Pinot Character and you looking for a wine that is vastly underpriced.....then here it is.

On the nose I get incredible amounts of fresh strawberry and raspberry preserves, subtle hints of mineral and wet pavement, and just a dash of dried herb.

On the palate the wine sings with fresh and tart raspberry preserves, strawberry rhubarb pie, and just a touch of toasted oak on the finish. It's really rather simple wine......but carries a purity and deliciousness that I often find in the higher end selections.

This may be the best priced Pinot Noir in the market and having tasted probably about 150 Pinot's this year, I'd definitely say it's the best value coming in at less than twenty bucks. 93 points
