MARIMAR ESTATE DONA MARGARITA VINEYARD PINOT NOIR - 2005
From Sonoma Coast with 14.2% alcohol. Unfiltered from Torres Family Vineyards.
Transparent red color with a nose of damp, earthy strawberries and smoke. Smooth with charred oak, vanilla, dark berries, and dark sour plum on finish.
SCORE & RECOMMENDATION:
The fruit here is too subdued for my taste and there is too much oak present. A well put together wine but one that isn't completely balanced.
