Saintsbury:
First published in 1920, George Saintsbury’s “Notes on a Cellar-Book” has inspired many to experiment widely and to form opinions unaffected by the fashion of the day. Included in those ranks are Mr. Ward and Mr. Graves, who named their winery in honor of Professor Saintsbury.

This is light and spicy on the nose, with a touch of alcoholic heat but nice sappy red fruits as well. There’s a touch of leather lurking here and some nice meaty notes. A little unusual in the mouth since this has good body yet until the modest tannins kick in there’s very little mid-palate weight. With time this fills out nicely, straddling the line between a rich, muscular style and something more elegant. The fruit is rich yet not too obvious, with layered black cherry notes and hints of cola and spice. The finish comes off as slightly sweet with lots of cola and baking spice. All-around well-done Pinot in a particular style. 90pts

Black cherry aromas with a mild, slightly herbal palate of tar and fig.

From a single vineyard, Stanly Ranch, this Pinot Noir had aromas of fresh cherries, strawberries, a vibrant, crisp wine, med acidity and tannins, approachable Pinot Noir

Gamey dark black cherries on the nose. Delicate cherry mouthfeel with a medicinal funky edge. Slightly dry sour finish. Lots going on but maybe a little too much distraction.

Light cherry and raspberry nose. Rich and fruity, with a smooth silken mid-palate. Rich, lush flavors of bing cherry and strawberry, with a soft grassiness. Finishes sweet with flavors of chocolate, cedar and herbs.

The succulent 2000 Pinot Noir possesses a multidimensional, intense bouquet of jammy sweet cherry fruit intermixed with loamy soil, subtle new oak, apples skin, and spice. Fleshy and medium-bodied, with good underlying but unobtrusive acidity as well as tannin, it is a delicious Pinot for drinking over the next 4ndash;5 years.

Lots of ripe, rich, jammy blackberry and black cherry fruit that is supple and well-centered, offering depth and concentration, with surprisingly firm tannins (for Garnet). A winner. Drink now through 2005.

Garnet long has been one of Californiarsquo;s greatest entry-level Pinot Noirs, and it still is. Maybe the best. The rsquo;09 reflects the balanced vintage. Itrsquo;s a dry, silky, light-bodied wine, with pretty raspberry and cola flavors.

A restrained but elegant nose of layered red pinot fruit, earth, herb and a hint of minerality gives way to pure, detailed and attractively textured flavors that are on the lighter side but carry fine flavor authority on the balanced, lingering and s...
