Quickie tasting notes:  This is Duckhorn Migration Pinot Noir, Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, California, 2009.  Smoky, sweet with a hint of banana on the nose (keep in mind, wildfires in Mendocino County precipitated a smoky element in many wines from the 2009 vintage).  Rich, bold and sweet on the palate.
 
Overall: Rates three stars on the five-star Spirit of Wine scale.
