Screwcap – Very fresh with touches of sweet soil, aromatic wood/pencil shavings, and balsamic tones. More barrel and soil than fruit at first. Very savory spice notes add some depth to the perfumy sour/gamy fruit. Light yet lush and relaxed in the mouth but with real solid intensity to the slightly roasted strawberry fruits. Lovely bright acids and minor tannins are in good balance. Lot’s of twizzler red licorice fruit on the fresh, clean finish with a gentle sweep of forest floor that ends with a balsamic note. Very solid pinot and the right weight for Turkey day. 88pts

Pungent red fruit and confectioner's sugar nose. Palate has some nice earth to it with red cherries and a bit of classic tire track pinot that I've come to love. This is just a superb, easy drinking, light to medium bodied wonderful pinot. I'd be happy recommending it to anyone.

A nice pinot noir. I can see why its so popular. There's a bit of a musty midpalate, but maybe this is just from the bottle having sat around open for a day. Strawberries and pine on the nose. Tannins are a bit intense and the alcohol stands out a bit.

Bright cherries and a light oak that darkens/deepens towards the finish. Earthy with smooth tannins and nice texture.

A fairly plain nose - slightly hot. Very rich, sweet and oaky. Great finish on bitter chocolate and Christmas cake spices.

Light cherry and fresh rose on the nose, but very sweet and flavorful of cherries. Still this wine offers some chewy tannins, but at $34 is a bit pricey.

Softer in 2003 than in more normal vintages, this shows ripe red fruit flavors, chewy tannins and spicy tobacco notes. Despite the heat and ripeness, it retains an herbal undertone, and the tannins have a bit of a green edge to them.

This wine has been critically acclaimed for decades for its sensual aromas and elegant intensity and depth. It boasts layers of red fruit, hints of spice and a long, graceful finish.

Firm in texture, with a tarry note against cherry and pepper flavors, the finish persisting. Needs time to soften. Best after 2007.

Pale red. Musky wild berries on the nose, with a strong underbrush note; has a nutty, mocha tone but doesn't stray to the overripe side. On the palate, this has medium weight and fresh red berry flavors, with a hint of tobacco. Finishes juicy and round, with licorice and blackberry notes.

A warm and dry summer in 2002 helped to produce ripe, balanced fruit for this Pinot Noir. Ponzi sourced the grapes from its own Aurora Vineyard, and also purchased from growers in the Gemini and Winter's Hill vineyards. The wine spent 11 months aging in French oak barrels, 30 percent of which were new.

Lithe in texture, vivid in flavor, bursting with black cherry, currant, blackberry, cedar, vanilla and exotic spice flavors that hang together beautifully. Rich from the first sip, and the flavors persist impressively. Yum. Drink now through 2012.

Complex scents suggests water, dried cherry, raspberry and baking chocolate. In the mouth, it's tight, compact and stylish. I love the details, the hints of earth and bark, and the rich vein of berry. The barrel flavors are well integrated and matched the firm tannins.

Winemaker's Notes:

By Josh Raynolds Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar, May/Jun 06 Rated: 87 Light red. Fresh and pure on the nose, with suave aromas of fresh strawberry and raspberry, along with hints of allspice and fresh flowers. A silky midweight with a tangy red berry tone. This easy-drinking pinot will go nicely with light red meat dishes.
