2004 Loring Pinot Noir – Clos Pepe Vineyard - Santa Rita Hills – California

Cerry red color with some slight browning at the edges. Cherry color compliments a similar cherry tinged aroma. This is a one dimentional wine in that respect…

There are cola aspects as well, not something unseen with Central Coast Pinot Noir. Medium bodied with a medium long finish.

Noticable heat at the end giving away its 15% alcohol level.

In a way, this is a typical California Pinot Noir style but the elements don’t really work in this wine.
