  • 2010 Windy Oaks Estate Pinot Noir Estate Cuvée Schultze Family Vineyard – USA, California, San Francisco Bay, Santa Cruz Mountains (2/21/2015)
    WIML91

    Tasted blind as part of Blind Pinot Tasting.

    Garnet color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose is a little tight gradually giving way to notes of soapstone, berries and plums. Flavors of berries, raspberries and cherries. Medium acidity, medium tannin, medium bodied. Drink now with a little air to jump start the aromatics.
    My guess was this is a California Pinot Noir. Unclear on vintage or producer.

    This wine came in 3rd place out of 14 wines with 10 tasters participating giving an average score of 91.10. (91 points)
