2006 J Wilkes Bien Nacido Pinot Noir 14.2% $55


Rather earthy and spicy on the nose with some alcohol showing. There’s some caramel oak here over black cherry fruit, with some cola notes and a hint of dried meat. Really smooth on entry, this is polished and refined with a fairly complex attack of sassafras, mint, cola and earth accenting the small black fruited core. A bit spicy on the back end, but nicely balanced with a really light, delicate touch. This is a lovely wine for lovers of tender textured and perfumed wines. Don’t look for power here. The finish is delicate but long, with spice, cola and black currant fruit. 91pts

    Wow it looks like you had fun tasting the >$50 Pinots. The lowest score was 90. I even think I can find some of these. If I do, your opinion will encourage me to invest the coin.
