Benton Lane Pinot Noir First Calss 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Our premier vintage of 'First Class' Pinot Noir is a deep ruby coloredwine that exhibits classic aromas of cherry and blackberries, with morecomplex underlying scents of plum, truffle, anise, cedar and forestfloor. Very ripe, fine tannins and balanced acidity create a rich,velvety texture that leads into an extremely long finish. Theexquisite balance in this wine makes it a very versatile food wine." Winery Notes"Litheand refreshing, with a lovely blueberry note at the center, offeringgraceful hints of plum and delicate spices as the finish rolls on.Distinctive and welcoming, this should develop well. Drink now through2015. 667 cases made." Score: 92The Wine Spectator, November 30th, 2007
