The 2009 Pinot Noir bursts from the glass with expressive red fruit, flowers, spices and mint. It shows lovely mid-palate juiciness and an elegant, polished finish. At $24 a bottle, it may very well be the single finest value in American Pinot Noir. I was hardly surprised to learn Emirates chose to serve this wine in their business class cabin last year. This is a dazzling wine from start to finish. It is also one of the two Pinots in this tasting (the others are 2008s) made from fully destemmed fruit. Wow!

The odoriferous aroma of this delicate, yet indurate Pinot Noir reminds me of a time when the winds of the East Bay flowed through the fibers of my PJs, tickling my scrotum. It sent me to place I shall never forget due to its utter beauty, flavor and sheer exuberance, and because any such description of this place fails in comparison to the magical imagery to which my mind indulged me too. For each sip I took of this exquisite and masterfully crafty beverage I couldn't help but laugh at the number of starving children and poor souls I could help with the money I spent on this wine. I instead converted the wine into pee many hours later, because I can, and you can't, and that's life

Getting better, still a bit heavy on the dark fruits
