Swami Pinot Noir 2009 - An Almost Magical Combination of Earth and Fruit

The Reverse Wine Snob: Swami Pinot Noir 2009 - An Almost Magical Combination of Earth and Fruit
The Swami from Sonoma (with a glow in the dark label).

Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast, California.

SRP of $17 and available at that price or occasionally as low as $13 on the deal sites. Sample submitted for review. 2,500 cases produced. From Gundlach Bundschu who also produce the BULK BUY rated Gundlach Bundschu Mountain Cuvée 2010 - Guaranteed To Put A Smile on Your Face.

From the bottle:
"A California native, inspired by the land, sun and sea. Swami Pinot Noir is exotic and earthy, fruit-forward and approachable.

14.5% Alcohol"
The 2009 Swami Winery Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir begins with very pleasant aromas of ripe and even a bit candied cherry, spice, cedar and cola. The wine needs some air to open up and when it does it is really fantastic: earthy and fruity all at the same time with a great spicy streak. Lots of tart cherry fruit is wrapped up in a nice round and almost creamy mouthfeel in this medium-bodied wine. It ends with notes of toasty oak and even a hint of chocolate on the medium-long finish. Another excellent Pinot Noir option for all your holiday meals!
