2008 MATELLO WINERY PINOT NOIR WINTER’S HILL DUNDEE HILLS

90 points

($45) Pale, bright red. Wild, intriguing scents of redcurrant, Campari and dried rose, with notes of botanical herbs and orange peel coming up with air; smells like the bastard child of a Negroni and a Chambolle-Musigny. Light-bodied, seductively sweet red fruit flavors turn tangy with air and show very good clarity and spiciness. Singular, lean and refreshing wine with strong finishing bite and a lingering echo of zesty red fruits. Don’t serve this without warning the unsuspecting.
