W.H. Smith Pinot Noir Maritime Vineyard 2006

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Enthusiast Review Rated 93 Shows the precision and control of Smith's previous Maritime Pinot, marked by a tense, exciting structure. Crisp acids and fine, dusty tannins dance with earthy cherry and cola fruit, herbs and oak to create a complex, tremendously rewarding palate experience. Best now through 2010. Wine Tasting Notes This wine is a stunning fusion of flavors; hints of rose petal and cinnamon on the nose, with just a touch of leather. Dark intense plum and pomegranate flavors flawlessly integrate with the substantial texture of exotic spices and seamless mouthfeel. We are especially satisfied by the long finish and the seamless acid/tannin balance.

The first vintage of Maritime Ridge Vineyards—the Smith's rising star—was harvested in 2002 and was released in the spring of 2004. Read less

The 2006 Maritime Ridge Pinot Noir is from a variety of carefully chosen vineyards all located just miles from the Pacific Ocean. Given the proprietary name, Maritime Vineyard by Bill and Joan Smith, this wine is a perfect blend of fruit from the Hellenthal Vineyard.
