Elkhorn Peak Cellars Elkhorn Peak Napa Valley Pinot Noir 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

Vibrant, fresh fruit, wonderful silky mouth feel and rich flavors. Well balanced with just the right amount of oak...elegant! This wine is drinking wonderful now, but will develop with additional aging.

Smoky and dark on the nose with on overlay of oily coffee beans adding depth to the bright wild cherry fruit. Smooth on entry then dropping out a bit with small tannins and good acid feeling a bit exposed. The fruit is very nice, rather low-key cherry fruit with herbal top notes and some well-integrated vanilla and graham cracker oak notes. The finish is modest with a little vanilla cream character and only modest fruit losing out to dry tannins on the finish. The oak here is quite prominent, but the wine does have a nice earthy edge to it. 87pts

I was expecting a lot bite from this bold red wine, but it's actually incredibly smooth. I get lots of tea and herbs, and a nose full of cherries. Perfect wine for a hearty meal.
