2006 Foley Estates Pinot Noir Rancho Santa Rosa

Another great bottle out on the bistro with a nice antipasti and a pizza from Empire.
This was a very gloral pinot noir on the nose, with that Santa Rita Hills nose as well. Lots of black fruits, mainly blueberry, blackberry, maybe even a little black cherry. Hints of earth, chai, and mushroom as well. On the palate, very fruit forward, with lots of those black fruits shining, and very well integrated tannins. A nice lingering finish that lasts 20-30 seconds. Another great Santa Rita Hills pinot that is drinking well now, but will probably stand up and get better over the next few years. Drink now between 2010. 91 points. Cheers!
