The 2009 Pinot Noir Santa Cruz Mountains is an excellent introduction to the house style. Floral aromas lead to layers of dark red fruit in this juicy, accessible Pinot. This is the least expensive Pinot in this lineup but it offers terrific balance, and shows no ill effects whatsoever of being tasted among the vineyard-designate bottlings. Fleshy, supple and wonderfully radiant, it will also drink better young than most, if not all, of those wines. The Santa Cruz Mountains is made from barrels that didn’t make it into the Horseshoe and Alpine bottlings. (AG)
A notably ripe nose of cassis, blackberries, plum and floral aromas leads to round, rich and delicious medium-bodied flavors that coat the mouth with dry extract on the balanced, long and solidly complex finish. Not surprisingly, this doesn't offer the sheer depth of the upper level wines but this is a very good entry level effort.
