WS 87 WA 90


Brilliant dark ruby color. Black plum, blackberry, lifted cherry, and wet stone after rain aromatics that are pure and focused. Black tea and cherry pipe tobacco notes add complexity. A crisp fresh entry which expands into a rich and vibrant mid-palate. The lively tannins provide grip and depth and are framed by spice and berry compote notes that persist on the long finish.

Reviews:

"Light in color and style, medium-bodied, with dried berry, spice, brown sugar-crme brle flavor, ending with dry earthy tannins. Drink now through 2014. Tasted twice, with consistent notes. 903 cases made. JL" -Rated 87, Wine Spectator

"The light to medium ruby-hued 2006 Pinot Noir offers sweet cherry, loamy soil, spice, and herb characteristics, a savory, relatively evolved, medium to full-bodied palate, and more flavor than its light-ish color suggests. Broad, savory, and ready to drink, I would not be surprised to see this wine evolve for 7-8 years or longer. The balance is impeccable. " -Rated 90, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
