The 2008 Gloria Ferrer Carneros Pinot Noir is a medium bodied, integrated wine with appealing aromas of red currant, blackberry, oak and vanilla. It has a nice minerality, refined tannins and a long finish. Drink this sipping wine now and for the next 5+ years. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89-90 pts. Tasted Sept/12.

After you let this open up, it becomes soft and smooth. It's a mellow wine with sweet cherries & vanilla woodsmoke. Nice medium body. It has a bit of tension holding it back from achieving greatness.

Nice smoky and beetroot aromas. Medium-bodied with red currant, vanilla, and woodsmoke flavours on palate. Well-integrated tannins and has a long finish. Tasted Sept/2012.
