Wonderful fragrant aromas of flowers and ripe cherry and wild berry, which transfer over to a smooth, rich, polished style that caresses the palate, turning silky and delicate. Finishes with vivid black cherry and blackberry fruit and touches of vanilla and spice. *Top 100 Wines of 2004* (JL)
Deeply pitched red and black pinot fruit aromas nuanced by hints of mocha and spice combine with sexy, rich and generous flavors that deliver good volume if limited complexity at present. The finish is sappy, dusty and mouth coating with a hint of warmth. This is a pretty effort and I like the overall balance here that should enable it to reward 4 to 5 years of cellaring.
Smoky, cedary oak stars here, and the wine is closed at first. After airing, it shows chocolate, leather and raisiny notes, with some complexity. Needs short-term cellaring to show its best.
