The 2006 Pinot Noir Casteel Reserve is medium ruby-colored with an alluring perfume of wood smoke, damp earth, black cherry, and black raspberry. This is followed by a wine with excellent focus, density, and intense, savory dark fruits, It is well balanced, nicely structured, and has a long, fruit-filled close. Give it 2-3 years of additional bottle age and drink it from 2010 to 2018. Light, silky and open-textured, with vivid currant and blackberry flavors, shaded with spice and black olive notes, lingering nicely on the generous finish. Drink now through 2014. 747 cases made. -HS Vivid red. Smoky cherry-vanilla, sassafras and underbrush aromas are strikingly seductive. Lush, creamy dark fruit compote flavors offer excellent palate coverage, with a bright orange peel bite adding lift. Inviting and delicious now.

Over the past twenty years Bethel Heights has been known for limited bottlings of distinctive vineyard designated and block designated Pinot Noir wines. In 2002 they took a new path and produced their first Casteel Reserve Pinot Noir, blending select barrels from several different vineyard sites. It has turned out to be a very exciting wine in each succeeding vintage. The aromatic profile is dominated by currant, black cherry, and oak spice. The palate is concentrated, featuring dense black and red fruits fruit and a subtle earthiness, framed by vibrant acids that not only provide the wine with length, but also provide the necessary structure for aging. Fine grain tannins round out this wine.

Winemaker's Notes:

Lithe open and immensely appealing for its supple plum blueberry and dusky spice aromas and flavors lingering beautifully on the harmonious finish. Drink now through 2014. 687 cases made. Really sexy pinot.
