08 Inman Thorn Ridge Pinot Noir  ($56) ☺☺☺☺

In previous tastings we have tried the 06 and the 07, so it was interesting to try the 08 offering from Kathleen Inman. The pedigree of the winemaker comes through despite this being a tough year for grape growers. The nose is full of cherry cola, darjeeling tea and a hint of lush cherry. The palate is floral, delicate and evolves in the glass. Of all the Thorn Ridge offerings I like the 07 the best but this 08 comes a close second.
