It had a very high alcohol level; almost to the point of asphyxiating you if you inhaled a little too deep. It had a distinctive plum flavor, but then had a rather acrid aftertaste along with a strong alcohol burn

Maybe 3.1 stars. Color, taking into account this is pinot noir, this wine has a deep dark color! Nose, this acts very new world, cranberries and some strawberries going on in here, some heat coming through! Midpalate, again tacking into account this is pinot noir, this wine has a lot of body (almost like merlot!), some charcoal flavors coming through, red fruits, again some heat. Finish, firm but nice tannins, red fruits are slightly dancing on my palate, lingering in the mouth, but one dimensional! Overall, this wine is really dense for pinot noir. Clearly it has a lot of potential now. I would put this away for 5-6 more years. I feel it is a little bit disjointed now because of the heat I am getting, but it is not that vibrant (it will go lighter overtime). This is only for new world lovers. Bottled at 14.5%, which is very high in my opinion for pinot noir! I must disagree with RP (my favorite wine critic) for scoring this 94. I am 89 points on this effort for now. I can see this reaching 90 points in 6 years. Happy drinking!

Winemaker's Notes:

This is a refined, sneaker of a wine! The aroma is bright with an appealing purity. Look for luscious red fruit, like raspberry and cherry made deeper by fresh earth, new leather, and a hint of black pepper spices. The flavor is pure and, dare I say it, "elitist". The red fruits are fresh and ripe, fresh earth integrates with spicy, almost floral, flavors. The juicy center is signature Spirithouse. The wine is youthful now, but will "sneak up" on you with the power and richness I have come to expect from this wine.
