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.

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

Nice spicy, peppery character to this pinot, almost like a pinot-zin hybrid. It has all the great qualities of a good Russian River pinot noir with that added bonus. Try it! P.S. It got even better and more complex the second day. It keep evolving and for the money, it's a great pinot!!

Nice subtle nose, aromas of dried cherries & cranberry with a splash of hay notes. Refreshing Pinot from the Russian River - enjoyed slightly cooled.

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.

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.

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.


External Review
Vintage: 2007 05/18/2011

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.

Soft, with pretty cherry, spice and cola tones highlighted by roasted herb, cedar and toasty oak character. Drink now through 2005.


External Review

Strawberry, raspberry and black cherry flavors are bright, focused and concentrated, with modest tannin and a hint of toasty oak. Drink now through 2007.

Offers a savory mix of dried berry, sage, cedar and mineral flavors. Medium-bodied and well-balanced, ending with dried herb notes. Drink now through 2015.

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes Fruity aromas of strawberries and raspberries followed by subtle aromas of rose petals and fresh herbs; viscous texture and supple tannins give way to a long, smooth finish.
