2007 Keller Estate Precioso La Cruz Vineyard Pinot Noir Magnum
And Wine Enthusiast wrote about this Sonoma Coast 13.9ABV beauty:Since the planting of our La Cruz Vineyard in 1989, Keller Estate has pursued a blueprint of clonal, or grape sub-variety, diversity based on the altitude, orientation and soil composition of each vineyard section. The diversity creates the elements on which to build textures, flavors and aromas, and ultimately complexity, into the wines.
The 20-acre El Coro block was planted with seven different clones of Pinot Noir. The vineyard sits high on the ridge-top where the vines are more exposed to the winds that bring the Pacific maritime air and fog through the Petaluma Gap. The terroir is defined by a thin loamy clay with a volcanic subsoil. The Pinot Noirs from the El Coro block are very expressive, with beautiful aromatics and great structure that shine through.
HELPFUL TIP: If you bid, and want to follow the auction to see if you are outbid, simply click 'Subscribe Topic' right below the text box when writing your reply!!A dazzlingly good Pinot Noir. Hard to exaggerate the precision of flavor and structure. Shows the massively ripe character of the vintage, with a starburst of raspberries, cherries, cola, minerals and spices, while the acidity and tannins are just about perfect. This crowd pleaser is just extraordinary and should develop in the bottle over the next six years.
