Deep violet color. Intense, oak-spiced aromas of dark berries, cherry liqueur, potpourri and woodsmoke. Deeply pitched black raspberry and cherry cola flavors show good breadth, surprising vivacity and a silky texture (this has a low pH of 3.3, by the way), with notes of candied lavender and sassafras coming up with aeration. In a ripe but energetic style, finishing with very good cling and lingering spiciness.

Sea Smoke's 2009 Pinot Noir Southing is gorgeous. It possesses striking textural depth and finesse. Juicy dark cherries, spices and flowers take shape beautifully as the wine fleshes out in the glass. The finish turns a bit fleeting as floral elements become more pronounced, but this is still a very pretty, nuanced Pinot.

Complex aromatics, tighter on the palate. Fresh and snappy, with a loamy earth edge to the dried berry, crushed rock and spicy-peppery scents, ending with cleansing acidity.

I'm not as impressed with this bottle as I've been led to believe I should. It has a fantastic bouquet, however, the taste isn't really there. It is a decent wine but not worth the hype in my opinion. I'll stick to Martinelli and Joseph Swan for my hard to find bottles. Crimson in color. Medium rim variation. Medium legs. Blueberry, Cherry, Forest floor, Oak, Violet. Medium bodied. Smooth texture. Medium finish.
