Bright red. Deep, smoky and wild, with a complex bouquet of red berries, cherry, smoked meat and mocha. Chewy red and dark fruit flavors offer very good depth, with dusty tannins adding support. Finishes with solid grip and slightly chunky tannins. Seems backward and a touch rustic today.

The 2006 Pinot Noir Russian River also has the same pomegranate-like notes and a sweet nose of berry fruit intermixed with some dried herbs, earth, cola, and spice. The wine has copious up-front fruit, and seems to be a candidate for drinking over the next 4-5 years.
