For this year's Isabelle, Jim was presented with more quality components than he has ever had to work with due to the exceptional nature of the vintage. A brilliant effort worthy of space in any cellar- it will live for years.

Vintage: 2008 01/10/2012

The 2008 Pinot Noir Isabelle is a selection of the estate's 36 best barrels across many of the Central Coast's finest Pinot terroirs, including Sanford and Benedict, Talley, Bien Nacido and Le Bon Climat. Striking aromatics meld into an expressive core of fruit in this bold, sensual Pinot. This is at once rich, yet accessible. Fine, silky tannins frame a finish of exceptional elegance and pedigree. In short, the Isabelle is a jewel of a wine. All of the barrels selected for the Isabelle were new Francois Freres barrels. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. Vivid ruby. A heady, sexy bouquet displays scents of red fruit preserves, incense and potpourri. Pure, sweet and precise red fruit and floral pastille flavors are seamless and silken in texture, with a subtle smoky quality in the background. Extremely suave, with excellent finishing cut and lingering notes of wild strawberry and allspice. This is showing really well today.
