glad I opened and well worth drinking now. pure red fruit (mostly raspberry/strawberry for me, but I can see how people get cherry) in a light bodied package with some definite spice and a little cola character. nice.

A perennial favorite in these pages, this Pinot hails from the very heart of what many, including ourselves, view as one of the top two or three Pinot patches outside of the very best in Burgundy.

Black raspberries, black cherries, sassafras, forest floor, and an undeniable minerality are found in the 2006 Pinot Noir Flax Vineyard. The acidity is slightly higher than in the 2005, but it is well-integrated because of the wine's super fruit char... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.

A superb effort, the medium to full-bodied, youthful, exuberant 2006 Pinot Noir Precious Mountain Vineyard offers notes of black raspberries, kirsch, forest floor, and minerals along with terrific vibrancy and length.

The 2006 Pinot Noir Westside Road Neighbors looks potentially even better than the 2005. Complex forest floor, raspberry, cherry, and earthy notes are intermixed with a background toasty wood character in this medium-bodied, fruity effort. With decen... Robert Parker.

Medium red. Fresh raspberry and candied cherry aromas are complicated by tobacco and Asian spices. Juicy red and dark berry flavors shows a liqueur-like concentration but are also impressively energetic and pure. Becomes chewier and riper on the fini... Stephen Tanzer.

The dark ruby/purple-hued 2006 Pinot Noir Hirsch Vineyard is an elegant, lighter-styled effort with sweet tannin and a more approachable personality than the 2005, but neither the concentration nor potential.

Winemaker's Notes:

Medium in body and in color, this wine exhibits a nose of high toned aromas of wild blackberries, pomegranates, sandalwood, Asian spice and roasted marshmallows. The mouth is filled with flavors of tart raspberries, truffles, dried cranberries, racy acids, cardamom and mocha. The bright Coastal acidity and ripe soft tannins accentuate the wild berry flavors which linger into the long finish. Will need some aging time.
