Another arrival from the OJAI Vineyard is this amazing 2008 Pinot Noir Santa Barbara County, Presidio Vineyard

93 points from Stephen Tanzer International Wine Cellar: “Vivid ruby. A complex, spicy bouquet displays candied red fruits, rose, licorice and allspice, with a smoky overtone. Pure, energetic raspberry and cherry flavors stain the palate and pick up a deeper note of mocha with air. Powerful but graceful, with strong finishing punch and lingering smokiness. This comes in at 13.2% alcohol but doesn’t lack for power”

92 points Robert Parker Wine Advocate: “The 2008 Pinot Noir Presidio impresses for its highly nuanced inner perfume and silky tannins, both of which serve to add considerable complexity to the bold fruit. This is a truly striking, beautiful wine. Presidio is a biodynamically farmed vineyard. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2020.”
