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.

This pinot noir really opens with some nice brie...you'll find dark fruit and spice, with a very nice last. I highly recommend at the price.

On the nose there are notes of blackcurrant, cherry, plum and cranberry while the palate bursts with juicy cherry and plum flavors, rich caramel and spicy white pepper. It has firm tannins and a long, persistent finish.

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.

Takes ripeness to the brink of jammy, with zesty blackberry, black cherry and wild berry fruit that'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.

Opens with flavors of rose petals, black cherries, plums, and vanilla bean with hints of nutmeg. Full bodied with smooth tannins and a dry finish that consists of toasted pine nuts and spicy tones.

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.
