Gloria Ferrer 'Etesian' Pinot Noir

This wine is a 2006 Pinot Noir from Sonoma. In a number of ways, Sonoma is to Burgundy what Napa is to Bordeaux. These wines can be attractive for their fruit and have good structure as well.

This Pinot is medium to full bodied and has an attractive flavour of raspberry, cherry and mushroom. It is quite dry and very balanced. The texture is not perfect, but the wine has some pleasant length.
