Shared a bottle of this last night (4/26/10) with a friend and we both thought it was delicious. 7 years of bottle age have benefited this wine; it has slight bricking in the color, and significant complexity on the nose, which is confirmed on the palate. The alcohol, while evident, is not excessively hot. It's a big Pinot Noir, to be sure, but a very nice, well-made example of a big Pinot Noir. The fruit, while moving somewhat into an interesting cooked fruit realm (think plum compote), is still rich and lively. Tannins are just right--just firm enough to give some structure. Tannins are very well integrated at this point in the wine's development. This is a good bottle of wine. Drink now through 2013.

Wine Tasting NotesRuby red color, with aromas of ripe Bing cherry, spice and undertones of toasted oak. In the mouth, a lovely supple texture with evident concentration of ripe cherry flavors leading seamlessly to a rich finish with lush velvety feel and subtle background acidity.
