Initially smoky and autumnal with wild cherry fruit and some sweet toasted wood spice and a lightly mushroom undertone, this turns softly floral and gently spicy with air. Very gently on entry with a nice soft leading edge that is replaced by some small scaled but firm tannins and bright acids. the fruit has a lovely burnished strawberry tone to it with a backdrop of dark cherry fruit. There's some nice soil tones adding complexity as well as some gentle wood spice rounding out the back end. Very appealing with a light, bright, yet slightly firm character. This is in a very nice place today, straddling the line between youth and maturity and finishes with nice focus and mouthwatering red fruit tones over light wood spice and herb tones. 90pts

I feel terrible, I opened this bottle way too early. This is going to be a fantastic pinot in five or more years from now. Way too young, green and somewhat bitter but should develop into a big, round, dark fruit, fine tannin expression of Carneros wine in the somewhat distant future. Put this in the back of the cellar.

Very nice Carneros Pinot Noir. Extremely well balanced with red and black fruit, good acidity and a nice long finish. This is not a bubble gum/sugary pinot, nor a big jammy pinot, just right on all fronts.

Cranberries and almonds in the aroma, with earthy and buttery tones. The fruit acidity is substantial, a little bit of granny smith in the body, with some heat in the finish and some bitterness.

I liked the taste, although i had it as a glass in a restaurant and do not know how long it was opened. No real nose.

Extremely nice Carneros Pinot. Well balanced with red and dark cherries but not overly fruity.

The wine highlights classic Carneros fruit: pomegranate, plum, and cherry fruit flavors, balanced by nuances of coffee and toffee. The multiple layers of flavors lead to a silky finish that lingers on the palate.

The multiple layers of flavors lead to a silky finish that lingers on the palate. Brightness of flavor from the acidity makes this a choice wine to pair with a variety of dishes such as pepper-crusted grilled salmon or pork tenderloin in a dried cherry relish.

WE 92pts. - Winemaker's Notes - The Bouchaine 2007 Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir was blended from a selection of the most dramatic estate wine lots to yield the most expressive wine possible. These are among the southernmost plantings in the Napa Valley and encompass the highest landmark terraces in the Carneros. The vineyard reaps the full benefit of the region s defining marine influence, which, along with limited irrigation water, serves to limit crop size, retain bright fruit acidity, and assure early ripening making the most well behaved and richly flavored wines. The 2007 vintage was marked by fears of drought conditions early in the season, but prudent watering from our partially-filled ponds allowed for full fruit development while limiting crop yields.
