Fess Parker Pinot Noir Ashleys Vineyard 6/Cs Usa 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Aromas of black cherry, raspberry compote, rose petal, cinnamon and graham cracker set the stage for this elegant wine. Black cherry, cranberry an earthy/forest floor element and a touch of minerality are highlighted by the hallmark acidity found in fruit from this cold climate vineyard. A touch of sweet oak frames it all in nicely and makes for terrific aging potential.

When Fess Parker was cast in the roll of Davy Crockett in the mid-1950’s, it caused an international sensation and changed his life forever. So too did the purchase of 714 acres in the Santa Ynez Valley change the course of the Parker family’s history. Realizing the potential of Santa Barbara County as a premium grape-growing region, Fess and his son, Eli, originally set out in 1989 to plant a small vineyard and sell fruit to local producers. But, as Fess’ daughter, Ashley explains, “ Fess is from Texas, so he can’t do anything small. “The Fess Parker Winery and Vineyard now farms almost 700 acres on four vineyards throughout Santa Barbara County.

Pretty acidic and tannic, with the hard mouthfeel containing flavors of red cherries, bitter cherryskin, currants and cloves. With a dry, astringent finish, the wine may need a few years to come around.

Dark red. Sexy, floral-dominated bouquet of cherry, sassafras, rose, magnolia and Asian spices. Tangy, sharply focused red berry flavors gain depth and sweetness with air, picking up tangy mineral and floral pastille qualities. A strikingly lively and balanced wine that finishes with excellent mineral lift and thrust.

Bright red. Exotically perfumed scents of red and dark berry preserves, with potpourri and spice notes adding complexity. Juicy and alluring sweet black raspberry and candied rose flavors are energetic and unencumbered by tannins. The brisk finish shows a resonating dark berry quality.

This Pinot Noir shows some restraint on the nose, with notes of raspberry, rose petal and sandalwood evident. On the mouth, it shows bold, focused brush stroke of black cherry, cranberry and vanilla.

The 2007 Pinot Noir Ashleyandrsquo;s Vineyard may turn out to be the longest lived of these Pinots. Its deep ruby/garnet color is accompanied by an evolved nose of spicy black cherries and forest floor. Layered and rich with sweet tannin, impressive concentration, and medium to full-bodied, it will age gracefully for at least 6andndash;8 years. While Fess Parkerandrsquo;s single vineyard and upper level cuvandeacute;es are unquestionably serious wines, he also produces some of the finest values that emerge from Santa Barbara.

Tasted in March, 2009, this Pinot was dark, rich and tannic. Clearly too young to really show its best now. But itandrsquo;s an ager. Give it three or four years to let all the parts come together, when the cherries, blackberries, spices and oak should begin to become silky and sweet. Will improve through 2015.
