David Bruce is one of my favorite California Pinot Noir producers. The man really knows his pinots. Last night I tried his 2004 Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast ($30). The wine was fairly fruit forward with notes of berry, black cherry, and plum. It felt full bodied and finished very smooth without overly agressive tannins. Overall, I liked the wine a lot. I currently have David Bruce pinots from two other regions that I'm looking forward to trying. I'd really like to use them in a tasting together - now I just need to figure out who to invite over!
Available locally at BevMo as well as the Wine Rack.
