Beaux Freres Belles Soeurs Shea Vyd Pinot Noir 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

A blend of Beaux Fréres Vineyard fruit and purchased fruit from the Muirfield Vineyard, this full-bodied, boisterous, dense, strongly-flavored Pinot noir. Deep ruby/garnet-colored, it offers up notes of earth, herbs, sassafras, forest, currant and plums. In the mouth, flavors of Allspice and cinnamon make for a premier cru Gevrey-Chambertin-like style. It has dropped some of its rustic tannin, which gave it 'savage' and was the reason for calling it "The Wild Thing". But blending and time in the bottle has tamed this beast as it has already evolved to a medium-bodied Pinot Noir dominated more by spice, cola, and sassafras notes than the typical blackberry fruit of our Beaux Frères vineyard

Bright ruby-red. Aromatic nose of raspberry, black cherry, mint and Valrhona chocolate. Thick and suave, with raspberry and cola flavors enlivened by harmonious acidity. Finishes long, sappy and spicy, with dusty tannins and an impression of youthfu... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Firm in texture, with a nice core of blackberry and dark plum, layered with white pepper and toasty notes as the flavors linger on the finish... Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 2000 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir Belles Soeurs The Wild Thing 750ml

Richer and fleshier than most '00s, beautifully balanced to focus its currant, blueberry and blackberry flavors on superfine tannins, finishing generous, round and spicy, with a delicate hint of oak. Drink now through 2007. 2,450 cases made. (HS) Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 2000 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir The Beaux Freres Vineyard 750ml
