Loring 2008 Rosella’s Vineyard

This is a lot of Pinot! Oodles of wild berries, black stone fruit and a touch of minerality. This is a full bodied wine made by Brian Loring (a.k.a. Rocket Man, really he worked on various missile related programs for the U.S. government), that is complex and concentrated yet showing the right amounts of depth and flavor. The wine is balanced and finishes with great nuances and structure. Only 500 cases produced. This wine got some press as well (WS 93 Points – Pinot Report 95 Points!)
