2009 Aubert UVSL Pinot Noir - 96 pts! The 2009 Pinot Noir UV-SL Vineyard is dazzling. It reveals all of the qualities that make Pinot here so compelling. In the 2009 I find expressive aromatics that meld seamlessly into the fruit, not to mention a gracious yet powerful personality. A super-refined finish has the last say in this moving, breathtaking wine. The UV-SL vineyard is just four miles from the Pacific Ocean. There is an energy and vitality in the wine I find totally irresistible. RP This is a stunning set of wines from Mark Aubert. Both the Chardonnays and Pinots developed considerably over the time I followed them. Readers should open the wines at least several hours in advance. RP We love these Pinots and think Mark Aubert makes the finest Pinot in the country!
