Highly drinkable yet in many cases ageworthy, the lauded 2009 California Pinot Noirs benefted from a mild winter and a cool summer - perfect for this temperamental grape. See Linda Murphy's pick of the best Californian Pinot Noirs here...

As usual, this wine is restrained and lean in its youth, yet vibrant and promising for the long term. Delicate floral aromas and pretty cherry fruit flavours, with a subtle herbal undercurrent. Transparent and focused. 18.5pts/20 (95/100pts)
