2009 A.P. Vin Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard
- Central Coast
- Santa Lucia Highlands
Community Tasting Notes 42
November 12, 2016 - Santa Lucia Highlands, CA. 14.6% abv. Screwcap. Bold and brambly in flavor, this was in sharp contrast to the more balanced 2009 Williams Selyem Pinot Noir Allen Vineyard I finished before this one which was under 14% abv.

July 31, 2016 - Cali Pinot nose, mature, but not old, raspberry, strawberry, neither tart nor blabby, nicely done.

November 23, 2015 - musty nose to start; great mix of medium body with dense ripe raspberry/cherry fruit; plenty of forest floor, earth and acidity. Still has upside. Nice surprise after several APV disappointments.
day 2--fruit less potent--some prune notes, and now unbalanced with too much cinnamon/oak

November 22, 2015 - Pretty darn delicious right now, no need to hold this one any longer. A bunch of the early fruit has mellowed. It drank best about 30 min after opening when some early effervescence subsided.
