Has a nice "zing" which gives it an almost effervescent feel. Spectacular complexity of fruit and spice and structure.
The nose showed red and black berries, brambly fruit with spice, stems and a hint of chalk dust. On the palate, it was silky smooth with sweet red and blue fruits and dark chocolate, which turned to cherry liquor into the long fine finish. This bottle improved significantly for the year it spent in my cellar.
Black cherry, wild berry and raspberry flavors in a ripe and bright form, yet it's well balanced and got nice depth. Very good example of a well crafted Santa Lucia area pint noir. Delicious and highly recommended. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 1/30/10 - Tasted again with winemaker 4/12/10, still outstanding pinot!
Nice aromas of cherry and spice with hints of eucalyptus. Juicy red cherry flavors and dark red berry with earthy cinnamon and sweet oak. Nice silky texture. Good structure and balance. - Tasted at Marcé Bacchus 10/16/10
Rich, distinctive blueberry, huckleberry and boysenberry fruit, pure and delicious and decadent. Deep, complex flavors. Wonderful! Highly recommended. - Tasted at Marché Bacchus 1/30/10
Four and a half glasses
