This was my second attempt at this wine. A previous bottle had been disappointing, but I wanted to give it a second chance. I'm glad I did. This wine had a very light color but a very solid structure and (I thought) more of an earthy taste. A bit of spice as well.

Smooth, rich and creamy, with pretty toasty oak wrapped around pretty cherry and raspberry fruit. Mildly tannic. Drink now through 2006.

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.

Tight and firm, with complex black cherry, blackberry, raspberry and spice framed by smoky, toasty oak. Drink now.

Ripe, plump and fleshy, with lots of exotic spice, plum, raspberry and blackberry fruit that's rich and complex. Ends with a burst of ripe dark fruit, lively acidity and supple tannins. Drink now through 2009. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

The Russian River Valley in Sonoma has a well deserved reputation for pinot noirs with ripe flavors and supple palates.Given to warm days and cool nights, pinot noir here achieves full flavor maturity

An elegant, delicate style, with a tasty core of smoky black cherry, wild berry, plum and anise. Gains depth and complexity on a long, rich finish. Drink now through 2007.

The Russian River Valley in Sonoma has a well deserved reputation for pinot noirs with ripe flavors and supple palates.Given to warm days and cool nights, pinot noir here achieves full flavor maturity without becoming overripe.This vintage gave us a long,even ripening season,creating a wine with luscious cherry fruit flavors and an enticing sense of richness in the mouth.Over twelve months aging in French oak barrels without being pumped,and the gentlest handling enroute to the bottle,has helped preserve subtle character and texture in the wine.While drinking beautifully now,it can support up to five years additional cellaring if desired.

Winemaker's Notes:

Exhibiting ripe berry fruit modest toasted oak and a silky palate this will accompany a wide array of food -- everything from salmon to beef.
