2008 Alma Rosa Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills

6/18/2015 - Dexter Morgan wrote: 90 points

Fruity and vigorous, this offers ripe, juicy, almost candied aromas of cherries, pencil shavings, and marzipan on a bed of red fruit. Long, tightly wrapped, and filled with white pepper and Asian spices that makes this feel frisky in the mouth. It gets fruitier and riper with air shedding some obvious youth along the way. Has potential to get better. Decant or give it another year.

Popped and poured right out of 55 degree cellar. Dried cherry and strawberry, crushed rocks. Refreshing acidity and a lighter body than other Sta Rita reds. Might let this sit before I try the next bottle. The minerality really stands out, makes it a pretty refreshing summer wine when served <60F.

5/20/2015 - gravedee Likes this wine: 87 points

Medium cherry color, med concentration, viscosity is med+. Ripe strawberry, cherries on the nose, along with oak and some earthiness. On the palate there's a decent amount of heat, high amount of tannins / very astringent. Not much fruit, dull, not bright. This is only hitting middle to the back of the tongue. It's ok, but lacks the complexity and elegance of better Pinots, particularly Sta. Rita Hills Pinots. At $22 at Costco I suppose I can do better. The Pali Huntington is much better in this price range. 86-87

Amazing wine. Lots of well balanced fruit -cherry, blueberry and some spice. Medium mid-palate and medium finish. Very tasty and lasted for 4 nights( kept it in the fridge with air pumped out). Taste stayed the same throughout. An amazing deal at $32.

Immediately upon opening this was nothing short of fermented Kool-Aid - absolutely horrible! Poised to empty down the sink, I allowed it to sit and get it's bearing and steeled myself for a second taste (yes - the first was THAT bad!). Became drinkable with some air, not to mention some cheese and almonds, showing a bit of cherry cola and red fruit, but not *nice*.

A very well sorted pinot with earthy undertones, spices with glazed cherries and raspberries. Slightly syrupy but the wine had good depth. Smooth texture and moderately long aftertaste. Overall, this was a very flavourful pinot on the palate but with great lightness in the body.

Absolutely gorgeous tonight with grilled rabbit-ginger sausages. Red-fruited, balanced acidity, smoky, mineral-laden and, with time, smelling of baking spices. I wish we had more of this wine.

1/12/2015 - The Drunken Cyclist Likes this wine: 90 points

The fruit has tamed down a bit and while I thought that would be a good thing, I am not quite sure. Don't get me wrong, this is still wonderful, but it lacks a tiny bit of intrigue compared to the last bottle. Maybe the difference between a second date and a third: still fun, but a little of the luster has worn off. thedrunkencyclist.com
