2009 Pinots Now On Sale!

We're very pleased to announce that our delicious 2009 pinot noirs are now available for purchase online.  To purchase, simply click here. If you were a fan of last year's offering, that was the Doctor's Vineyard pinot noir.  The 2009 version is tasting just as good (if not better!) and is a can't miss purchase.  The other two pinots are new this year.  The Hayley Vineyard pinot from Anderson Valley is a lighter, more Burgundian style pinot that makes a wonderful food pair.  If you recall our travails through the dreaded smoke taint period, you can now finally taste what an Anderson Valley pinot noir is supposedto taste like!  The Split Rock Vineyard pinot is on the darker, heavier end of the pinot spectrum with notes of cedar, black tea, and spices.  If you like your pinot full bodied, this is definitely the wine for you.   The summary tasting notes are posted below and full technical specs can be found on the ordering page.

If you are in San Diego and you want to avoid shipping charges, we do have a small am0unt of wine left over from our very successful release party.  Please contact us directly at brian@bruliamwines.com to arrange for a local order and pick-up.  Please e-mail us soon as what limited inventory we have on hand will go quickly!

2009 Hayley Vineyard Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley

This lighter-style pinot in the Burgundian tradition showcases a fruit basket of bright red cranberry, strawberry, and raspberry plus cola, rhubarb, cardamom and curry.  Flavors of spice cake, red candy and currant marry lively acid to restrained tannins.  Food friendly industry favorite!  Drink now through 2015.

2009 Doctor’s Vineyard Pinot Noir, Santa Lucia Highlands

Seductive whiffs of mushroom, pipe smoke, and damp earth surround a dark berry core.  Hallmark leather, clove, and blackberry brambles honor this wine’s Santa Lucia Highlands pedigree.  A blast of raspberry and cocoa deliver the same velvety tannins and lush mouth feel as the 2008 vintage.  Drink now through 2015.

2009 Split Rock Vineyard Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast

Our most full-bodied and lusty offering, this pinot is dripping with stewed cherries, dense plum, and rich berries.  Bursting ripe fruit is tempered by savory notes of black tea, cedar, and spice box.  With more tannin and a layered complexity, this is the most age worthy of our 2009 pinots.  Drink now through 2017.
