Review

The 2009 Pinot Noir Zio Tony Ranch is one of the more exuberant, flashy 2009 Pinots. The fruit is decidedly opulent, a ripe wine that will appeal most to readers who enjoyed the full-bodied style of Pinot. Layers of fruit build towards the big, seamless finish. A touch of alcohol comes through on the finish, but otherwise this is a fine effort. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2020.
