This is rather spicy on the nose with faded Middle Eastern spice tones, balsam and smoke adding a savory element to the core of red cherry fruit. There’s an underlay of oak here as well as some sweet prosciutto fat tones. Shows nice cut on entry, then fills out in the mouth with sweet, slightly creamy cherry fruit that has a spicy currant edge. This has some nice spicy notes and good tension in the mouth with a fairly fruit driven finish that incorporates wood spice tones on the finale. Rich and red fruited with a nice touch of astringency on the finish.91pts

Lightly spicy on the nose with a gentle herbal edge to the mineral flecked sweet fruit that recalls strawberry rhubarb compote with a lovely fennel top note. Seamless on entry this is wonderfully fresh in the mouth with well-integrated acidity and earthy flavors of red fruit up front with a light layer of wood spice adding complexity on the mid-palate and red currant toned back end. This has a very nice texture with the soft, fuzzy tannins more noticeable than the acid yielding a rather suave mouth feel. The finish is a bit earthy, nice spicy and moderately long with a long cola toned finale. 91pts

Softly fruity on the nose with some woodsmoke element on the nose and some raw wood tones as well. Pretty rich up front with well-integrated acids and a gentle streak of vanilla accenting the dark, slightly confiture flavors of cherry and raspberry with a slight white chocolate edge. There are nice if gentle tannins here, offering good support to the fruit, particularly on the moderately long if simple finish. A fairly fruity style of pinot. 88pts

A bit high toned on the nose with early floral and citrus notes being joined latter by spiced cherry fruit and a touch of herby cola. This is surprisingly stealthy on entry with a touch of alcohol noticeable but otherwise moderately intense flavors of earthy cherry fruit are delivered without much weight. The mid-palate gains a touch of woody sweetness and vanilla while the fruit flavors gain some intensity as well as a meaty element on the backend which leads to a long, richly fruited, dark cherry finish. This is a wonderful wine for those looking for rich, dark fruit flavors in a lighter bodied, elegant style. 90pts

Firm and tight with loamy earth graphite dried currant and berry fruit as well as hints of underbrush. Full-bodied intense and complex turning a bit simpler on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 476 cases made. -JL Wine Spectator.

The vintage's low yields are reflected in the glass by a great intensity of aroma and flavor. Wild blackberry, Santa Rosa plums, and rich black cherry are the dominant aromas. While hints of sandalwood, cola, and pipe tobacco give it depth and complexity. In the mouth, intense flavors of cherry pie and black currents make the mouth water. Rich tannins and bright acidity give the wine great texture without weight. This is an exotic wine that floats across the palate and is ready to be enjoyed now.- Ryan Hodgins, Breggo Cellars' Consulting Winemaker

Medium red. Redcurrant, dried cherry and rhubarb on the nose, with a touch of smoky peat. Firm red fruit flavors show a faintly smoky quality and notes of anise, cracked pepper and smoked meat. A bit tight on the back; this wine's low-key smokiness makes me wonder if these grapes were affected by the wildfires of 2008.

Winemaker's Notes:

Breggo Pinot Noir displays classic Anderson Valley aromatics of cherry and raspberry which gives this wine a supple structure that is drinkable now but should deliver pleasure for years to come. Depth of color and the long finish hint of its roots as a blend of the renowned Savoy and Cerise vineyards.
