The 2003 Pinot Noirs of this accomplished winery share a terrific sense of concentrated fruit and the subtle specifics that district can bring regardless of provenance, and, even when fairly ripe as this bottling is, that fruit is unstinting and a careful winemaking hand shows in terms of structure and balance. Smelling strongly of violets, ripe cherries and wisps of sweet cedar, this one is kept surprisingly bright by a fine spine of acidity, and its riper aspects are not allowed to run wild. As with most of siblings, it is both immediately inviting and capable of a few years of improvement.
Deep, bright ruby. Sappy aromas of crushed berries, kirsch and licorice. Sweet, dense and rather muscular, with wild flavors of blackberry and blueberry. A concentrated, distinctly masculine wine with terrific inner-palate energy. Finishes long and youthfully aggressive. This makes the Weir Vineyard wine seem open-knit by comparison. (ST)
A delicate style, with spicy raspberry, wild berry, mineral and a touch of vanilla, turning complex and detailed on the finish.
