Iota Cellars Pelos Sandberg Vineyard Pinot Noir Eola-Amity Hills USA 2008 Vinous Review: 90+ points Deep red. Black raspberry and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of sassafras, black tea and anise. A sexy floral nuance comes up with aeration and carries onto the palate, which features dark berry and cherry-cola flavors and good mineral spine. Finishes on a gently tannic note, with very good length, solid grip and lingering spiciness. Give this some air or a few more years of bottle age. -- Josh Raynolds Wine Spectator: 89 points Light and silky, with raspberry and peppermint flavors that ride easily over the fine tannins, finishing with zestiness. Drink now through 2016. 330 cases made. –HS The Wine Advocate: 88 points The 2008 Pinot Noir Pelos Sandberg Vineyard was bottled without fining or filtration. Medium ruby red with an enticing nose of cedar, spice box, cherry blossom, underbrush/earth notes, and raspberry, on the palate it is layered, intense, densely packed, and structured. Give it 2-3 years of cellaring and enjoy it from 2012 to 2020. Pinot Noir pairs well with salmon or tuna and meaty white fish, lean red meats, duck, turkey, and fresh herbs like rosemary and thyme. It is also a great choice for the Thanksgiving table.
