Community Tasting Notes (average 89.6 pts. and median of 90 pts. in 8 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by j.michael.kilgore on 3/12/2011 & rated 90 points: Drank over three days- held exceptionally well. Nose of cherry, oak, herbs (rosemary, thyme). Light to medium bodied palate with more cherry, raspberry and acidity that dances on your tongue. (2530 views)
 Tasted by konadog on 2/7/2011: nose outdoes the palate at this point. bright red fruits and some asian spice on the nose, taste is strawberry with some sour cherry. 88pts (2408 views)
 Tasted by dan_hess on 4/13/2010 & rated 90 points: Needed about 45 minutes to open at all. Very heavy tannins for a Pinot. Excellent bright red cherries on the mid pallate. Got significantly smoother over the next hour and half. (3048 views)
 Tasted by williamswhine on 3/16/2010 & rated 89 points: Ruby red in color with hints of cherry/strawberry and vanilla. First time tasting a bottle of Failla-- I enjoyed it. Looking forward to more in my cellar. (2872 views)
 Tasted by babnik on 11/23/2009 & rated 86 points: Delicate strawberry fruit is currently dominated by bracing acidity. Elements of cinnamon and clove. This wine needs time but hints of really nice things to come. Blind, I would have guessed Oregon rather than Sonoma. (3122 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

California

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.
