2009 Navarro Pinot Noir Deep End Blend Anderson Valley

Deep red at the core with slight fading at the rim. Deep, red fruited nose. Lush fruit, cranberries and cherries on the palate, bit of pepper. Sweet, polished tannins, nice acidity, excellent balance. Becomes slightly tart as it moves across the palate. Very long finish of red fruit. Very nice right now, but seems to be at or slightly past peak. I would drink these over the next two years. "B+"
