11 Loring Keefer Ranch Pinot ($45) ☺☺☺☺

Loring are a small producer specialising in Pinot and Chardonnay. I have been a fan of their wines for some time although we have not visited the winery it remains on the 'to do' list. This Pinot comes from the impeccable vineyard of Keefer Ranch which produces, in my opinion, some of the best fruit in the area. The nose is of sweetened black  cherries and lashings of strawberries, the taste is shows touches of cola and the overall mixture gives it a nice balance and a long finish. This is ready for drinking now and if past years are anything to go by will benefit for resting in the cellar.  I like it.
