- Longoria Pinot Noir Fe Ciega Vyd 2007 Product #23457 (In Stock)
"Fe Ciega" means "blind faith" in Spanish - this was the first vineyard Rick ever planted, and he did so based on his blind faith in the quality of the site. The 2007 Fe Ciega Pinot shows classic Santa Rita Hills aromatics - wild and vibrant, bursting with ripe berry fruit.Very cool and stylish already and the palate length is amazing. There's just enough tingle of tannin at the end to suggest another 2-3 years of cellaring - this is very fine and will only get better.
"Bright red. Highly aromatic bouquet displays scents of red and dark berry preserves, cherry skin, anise and dried rose. Deeply concentrated raspberry and cherry flavors are firmed by fine-grained tannins and pick up a suave, spicy character in the glass. The anise note resonates on the long, spicy, focused finish. I'd hold this one for a few more years."International Wine Cellar 91 points
