Beaux Freres Pinot Noir Beaux Freres Premier 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

"Most vintages of our wines need a bit of bottletime to really show their stuff as we take great pains to produce winesin a relatively oxygen-deprived environment at cold temperatures. The 2006 vintage is a beautiful year of ripeness, and the 2006 Beaux Frres Vineyard shows the exceptionalmaturity of the grapes and the tannins. Deep ruby/purple-tinged to therim, with a sweet, ripe nose of black raspberry,kirsch, with some underbrush and spice notes (any evidence of new oakcasks is completely obscured by the wine's fruit). The wine cuts abroad savory path on the palate and has relatively elevated glycerinand sweet fruit which tends to obscure and hide the significant tannin.This is a very full-bodied, powerful style but also has a seamless integration of fruit acidity, wood, tannin and alcohol.It's a beauty and can be drunk young, although we envision this winehitting its peak in 5-7 years and lasting for 15-20. It is the sexiest,most hedonistic wine from this vineyard site to date. For that reason,we think it is among the finest wines we have ever produced."Winery Notes

Perhaps the most collectible Pinot Noir in America, Beaux Freres has set a standard that few can match. A partnership between renowned wine critic Robert Parker and his brother-in-law, the winery produces only Pinot Noir. This wine comes from their 23 acres estate vineyard called Ribbon Ridge where yeilds are kept to just 2 tons/acre. 2006 was an outstanding vintage in Oregon, perhaps the best in modern memory. Since their first vintages in the early '90's these wines have been instant cult classics. Of this 2006 the winery says "It's a beauty and can be drunk young, although we envision this wine hitting its peak in 5-7 years and lasting for 15-20. It is the sexiest, most hedonistic wine from this vineyard site to date. For that reason, we think it is among the finest wines we have ever produced." Wine Express is extremely lucky to have gotten hold of a miniscule amount of this holy grail of Pinot. Please don't wait because it won't be here long. This item excluded from XTYPAK and any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount.
