Sea Smoke Southing Vertical (Traci's House): Medium dark garnet with purple around the rim. Nose is very light toast, leather, dark cherry, and must. The core of the palate is a ripe sweet cherry but mid palate fades immediately, hollow through the finish. Light tannins and a little thin but more feminine of the line up.
Nose of sweet cherries, and red currants. Medium-bodied wine with complex flavors, minimal tannins, and plenty of red fruit as well as tart cherries evident on the palate. Wine is beginning to show its age.
Very much American pinot, but delicious, and still bright red fruits even at this age. decent finish, alcohol not really noticeable. Served alongside 05 Beaux Freres out of mag, which was a totally different experience. One would have mistaken the Beaux for a 1er cru red burg...not the Sea Smoke. Both very good wines.
