2009 MacPhail Family Winery Frattey Shams Vineyard Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley

Nearly transparent ruby in color. The nose is dark and reserved, with spice and earth framing the fleshy black fruit. Medium-full in the mouth, the wine spreads out with a velvety feel. For a 100% Dijon clone Pinot Noir, this lady shows restraint and depth of character, while throwing some fine, silty sediment. How much will she blossom as she matures?
