I had a tie for my number one spot and voted accordingly. So in Alphabetical order:
'09 Lazy Creek Vineyards, Estate Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley, California, USA. ($42) This wine was a bright garnet with aromas of cherry and a drop of vanilla. It had a nice acidity and a sensation of balanced deliciousness. I physically had trouble spitting it out because it was so tasty. They are in the process of updating the tasting room, which is in Philo. It sounds like a place I would definitely like to visit to try the other varieties of wine that they produce. If the Pinot is any indication, there are treats out there to find.
