The prodigious 2009 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge reminds me of one of the great vintages of the DRC Vosne-Romanee. Notes of forest floor, jammy raspberries, blueberries, boysenberries and spring flowers are followed by a full-bodied, textured, layered mouthfeel, and great intensity, precision and freshness. This stunning 2009 is already showing considerable complexity, and should age effortlessly for 10-15 years. The visionary husband and wife team of John Wetlaufer and Helen Turley have created a largely unprecedented legacy of extraordinary quality that is unsurpassed by anyone else in Northern California.

Pure, rich and graceful, brimming with complex red berry, blueberry, raspberry, cinnamon and spice notes, expanding and gaining on the finish, with a lovely aftertaste that echoes the core flavors. Tightens on the finish, where the tannins are fine-grained and firm. Drink now through 2024. (JL)
