Beaux Frères Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge Beaux Frères Vineyard 1999
A dense ruby, almost purple color offers up notes of black cherries intermixed with wood and foresty smells. Sweet, rich, medium-bodied, with delicate, nuanced flavors that cascade over the palate with no hard edges. Acidity provides vibrancy and focus. An impressive, strong effort for this vineyard, it should rival the brilliant 2000.

Bright, supple and open-textured, offering disarmingly pure currant and blackberry flavors that linger elegantly on the extra-long finish. Not a blockbuster; it's just yummy and refined. Tannins aren't intrusive, making it tempting to drink already. Wine Spectator. A Pinot Noir wine from Oregon in USA. 1999 Beaux Freres Pinot Noir 750ml
