Superlative Pinot Noir that has everything one seeks out in a Pinot - elegance, finesse, class, depth, subtlety, not to mention lots of delicious fruit. This deep yet silky wine has a terrific perfume of plum, spice, crushed berries, and rose blossoms. Seamless, perfectly ripe mouth impression from start to finish. One of the better Pinot's I've tried in recent times.

Deep red. Bright raspberry and cassis aromas are complemented by vanilla, smoky bacon and cured tobacco. Sweet, lush and creamy, with a ripe cast to the dark berry and candied cherry flavors. Impressively sweet and round but nicely focused on the finish, thanks to a gentle tannic firmness.

At the moment this newly released Pinot rests a bit uneasy; its fruit seems both overripe and underripe, and there is a bit of a hole in the middle palate. The flavors of green apple and rhubarb, combined with sharp acids, create a youthful wine which will certainly last a number of years. How it will develop is uncertain. For the moment, a few hours breathing time are in order.

Polished and elegant, with a lovely range of plum, cherry and mint flavors. Shaded with subtle notes of smoke and toast as the flavors linger gently. All beautifully balanced and refined. Drink now through 2012.

Rich in texture, this harmonious wine shows ripe blackberry and cherry flavors shaded with pepper and licorice notes, mingling smoothly on the graceful finish. Drink now through 2013.

Velvety, harmonious and beautifully focused to show off its plum and currant flavors, delicately shaded with hints of cream, clove and coffee. This just keeps sailing on the finish. Drink now through 2016.

All potential at the moment, itrsquo;s showing scents of sandalwood and lemon oil to accent black plum and a deep core of spice, almost like roasted cinnamon. The plum and black cherry fruit gains ground with air, suggesting some staying power.

Ponzirsquo;s reserve shows plenty of well-defined muscle and sinew, with firm and slightly chewy flavors of red berry, cranberry and spicy red apple. The tannins are relatively smooth and ripe, and the flavors have a pleasing resonance as they weave through the finish. There have been some vintages where the new oak seemed a bit heavy-handed; not so here. This wine has the structure and balance to reward some years in the cellar.
