A surprise at $15! #2 rated wine at my recent May horizontal tasting of 2007 Sonoma pinots (the Belle Glos Meiomi was #1). Smooth, nice color, immediate attack of berries and cherries. Seemed to not benefit from breathing.
Nice nose. Delicate. A little thin with very little lingering.
A little thin. Quick finish.
Subtle cherry and white pepper finish. Great wine, great price, great year -- one of my favorites.
Light fresh nose, strong up front with crancherrytasticness. Appropriate dryness and a little short on the finish. Not terribly complex, but quite enjoyable. Good value in a domestic pinot 88pts

Offers an earthy cherry-rhubarb edge, with mineral and spice flavors that are clean and pleasantly earthy, ending with a baked pie flavor and firm tannins. Drink now through 2013.
Fairly light in color and texture, with a blend of cherry and herb flavors couched in medium acidity. Finishes moderately, with hints of tea and earth. Drink now through 2002.
Breathe in the oak and apple wood smoke, breathe out the scents of cherry skin. This wine is tight and light in body, yet there's a gelatin thickness backing up the texture. The fruit is shut down and needs to grow into that texture - as it may well do over the coming year.
This wine preserves the region's vital characteristics (well-ripened fruit and spice), although they've been diluted by necessity for commercial purposes, what with 28,000 cases produced. Light and soft, with delicate yet surprisingly delicious black-raspberry, smoke and cinnamon notes.
Strawberry, raspberry and black cherry flavors are bright, focused and concentrated, with modest tannin and a hint of toasty oak. Drink now through 2007.
Soft, with pretty cherry, spice and cola tones highlighted by roasted herb, cedar and toasty oak character. Drink now through 2005.
