The 2009 Pinot Noir Quarter Moon Vineyard is a big, rich wine loaded with sweet black fruit. Expressive aromatic nuances are woven throughout, giving the wine much of its lift and vibrancy. Firm tannins frame the long, polished finish. This wonderfully complete wine is firing on all cylinders. Another year in bottle should help some of the power to soften. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2019.

Review

Lots of acidity in this young wine, maybe more than some wine lovers will be comfortable with. That gives the enormously ripe cherry and persimmon fruit a bite, and could help this dry, silky wine to develop in the cellar. It’s of a piece with the 2007 and 2008. Try after 2015.
