Good deep red-ruby. Raspberry, pepper and a hint of tobacco on the nose. Rounder and sweeter than the Quarter Moon, and a bit more red fruit in character, with spice and pepper notes lifting the middle palate and perking up the long aftertaste. Deep, seamless pinot noir with lovely balance.

Savory herbs, mint, licorice and sweet red cherries emerge from the 2010 Pinot Noir Estate Pastorale Vineyard. A beautifully delineated, mid-weight Pinot, the Pastorale impresses for its fabulous balance and pure personality. The 2010 is bright and focused from start to finish. Savory herbs and floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and finesse. It is a lovely showing from Phelps. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.
