WTN: Failla PinotNoir RanchSantaRosa SRH '05...(short/boring

by TomHill » Fri Nov 02, 2018 12:44 pm

Tried this wine of Ehren's last night:
1. Failla PinotNoir RanchoSanta Rosa Sta.RitaHills (13.7%) StHelena 2005: Med.color w/ some bricking; slight mousey/hantavirus/funky nose that clears mostly to rather cedary/pencilly/Fr.oak/toasty some cherry/black cherry/aged PN light smokey/Burgundian rather complex nose; fairly tart/tangy/metallic quite cedary/pencilly/Fr.oak light cherry/black cherry/old PN bit smokey/Burgundian/earthy complex flavor w/ light smooth/gentle tannins; very long/lingering tart/tangy/metallic light cherry/black cherry/PN fairly cedary/pencilly/Fr.oak bit smokey/pungent/Burgundian complex finish w/ light smooth tannins that are fully resolved; starting to show that metallic/tangy character of a wine entering its decline but still has some life left, rather quite interesting, and offers up some pleasure.

I don't think Tegan took over full time at Turley until 2013, so yes, Ehren was still making Turley at the time.
