David Bruce Pinot Noir Anderson Valley 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator: A rustic, Old World style, intense and full-bodied, with loamy earth, dried berry, sage and mineral notes that are chewy and chunky. Offers enough complexity on the finish to merit short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2015. (9/30/10)

Aromas of sage and a touch of wildflowers, and I would start to think this would be a very flowery Pinot until the first sip where a nice palette of raspberry and dark cherry gave me a pleasant surprise. There is some bright fruit in this glass with a good bit of acidity all leading to a pleasant strawberry finish.

Takes ripeness to the brink of jammy, with zesty blackberry, black cherry and wild berry fruit thatrsquo;s smooth, ending with ripe, round tannins. Holds its focus on the finish, ending with a flash of pretty fruit flavors and a touch of cedary oak. Drink now through 2008.

Lovely deep dusty rose and violet aromas open this light and fresh, yet velvety, offering. Cinnamon, mint, chocolate and tobacco accents keep the palate lively, while a ripe, easy feel makes it eminently drinkable. Drink now-2006.

Tasting Notes - This vintage is a selection of superb Pinot Noir grapes from the Sonoma Coast. The region combines cool ocean climate and sufficient rainfall to promote natural sugar development and flavorful grape acidity. This wine has an expression of red cherry, cranberry and plum coupled with lingering notes of nutmeg, cinnamon and a subtle hint of clove. On the palate, red cherry and plum dominate, with hints of vanilla, citrus, toasted pine nuts. Fine tannin structure and a long finish.
