2009 Abbey Ridge Pinot noir

If you are looking for a possibly great vintage from Abbey Ridge, this is the one to invest in.  The aromatics which developed in the wine from the 35 year-old Wadenswil block certainly stunned us and forced us into an economically stupid decision of pushing much of the wine from the 35 year-old Pommard block into our Dundee Hills Reserve bottling.  But our economic loss is your gain because the decision we made was the correct one….the high tone aromatics of rose petal, lavendar and rosemary are exquisite!  The small bit of Pommard that did go into the blend added beautiful structure so that this wine possesses aging ability as well as short-term drinkability.
