  • 2007 Loring Wine Company Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard - USA, California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills (5/1/2016)
    Dark and clear in the glass, but there was considerable sediment in the bottle. Still a good nose of Pinot fruit. On the dark side. Terrific balance with resolved tannins and acidity. Not flabby or candied as some big Pinots might exhibit. Long finish. Exceeded expectations for a wine many say drink within 3 years.

2007 was an excellent growing year. Brian has always done an excellent job with our fruit. [cheers.gif]

Agreed! Even though he likes ripe fruit, he knows how to handle it.

Still have one 2007 Clos Pepe Estate to enjoy soon.
