Gloria Ferrer Etesian 2006

  • Area: California, Sonoma
  • Grape: Pinot Noir
  • Alcohol: 13.5%
  • Rating: Black 94 Dilettante 94
Description: The intriguing nose of raspberry, coffee bean, shitake mushroom and a waft of smoke is a preview of the taste. Beautifully balanced and supple in the mouth. Complex and layered flavors of raspberry, toast, shitake mushroom, a hint of strawberry and a dash of nutmeg. The finish is lingering with delicate nuances of ripe red berries and soft tannins. We really enjoyed this wine. Decanting not required. It's as tasty as the Carneros without the heat and a smaller price tag. This is on my buy again list, for sure.

Price: $16
