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...

Earthy mushroom and toast on the nose, with the palate more savoury and spicy than fruity and lush. Yet the tart raspberry/cherry character is evident, enveloped in caressing tannins. 17pts/20 (90/100pts)
