2006 Arcadian Pinot Noir Sleepy Hollow Vineyard - USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands (2/10/2020)
– decanted 30 min. before initial taste –
– tasted non-blind over 2 – 3 hours –

NOSE: ripe red fruits; “flat” mineral aspect – rocks; hint of orange; moderately expressive.

BODY: light bodied; brick ruby color of shallow to medium-shallow depth.

TASTE: medium±to-high acidity; spices; no tannin; alc. a touch noticeable; medium-light to medium concentration of fruit; very light, non-descript tart red fruits; medium-light oak. Fairly open, and lighter than I was hoping for. Not as structured as some other vintages, but doesn’t strike me as falling apart, either.
