Lachini Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Cuvée Giselle 2005

Winemaker's Notes:

"Mediumred. Bright nose features fresh raspberry and candied cherry aromasaccented by fresh rose and minerals. Pure, refreshing red berry flavorsare nicely framed by light, dusty tannins. This impressively longmidweight finishes suave and sappy, with sexy oak spices and raspberry."90 pointsBy Josh Raynolds, Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 07"TheS (la Sorella della famiglia) is the sister wine to our Estate PinotNoir, as made by Peter Rosback of Sineann with 100% Estate pinot noir.The style is more lush and fruit-forward as a result of having beenharvested between 1.5-2 weeks later than our 2005 Lachini Family EstatePinot Noir. The S is comprised from the same blocks and clones as theEstate Pinot Noir.Richlyextracted and young, the S offers concentrated heady aromas of ripeblack cherries and a touch of toasted oak. Deep saturated ruby colorwith well-focused layers of wild blackberries, dark cherries andbrambleberries. Finishes lively, with spicy and jammy tones and alengthy finish. It should benefit from short-term cellaring and age for2-7 years. We suggest decanting for 30 minutes in its youth orcellaring for increased nuances. Fans have been known to refer to theS as the sexy bombshell Pinot."Winery Notes
