Review: 2009 Villa Mt. Eden Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
This Pinot from Villa Mt. Eden is certainly drinkable, if workmanlike. Dusty and chalky, its earthier characteristics overpower the fruit in the wine, which is on the dark and raisiny side for a Pinot, which should be bright and tart. The finish is moderate, but drying, again overshadowing the fruit in the wine.
