Pyramid Valley Vineyards "Earth Smoke" Pinot Noir 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

First crop from Pyramid's home vineyard block of six-year-old vines. Light ruby/garnet. Pungent, precise, sauvage nose of smoke, chalk, wild (salmonberry, fraises des bois) and cultivated (blood orange, red currant) fruits, along with notes of musky spice, and fur. Gives a strong impression of being more soil- than grape-driven. Surprisingly docile in texture, but penetrating in flavor: again wild red fruits, furred game and toasted spices. Complex, dizzying, intense. Provides a wild ride, for so delicate and weightless a wine. 60 cases produced.
