This is a big, full-bodied wine, huge in fruit, yet it has the silky elegance that Pinot needs. It’s bone dry, with adequate acidity and a young, unresolved mouthfeel. There’s a tremendous core of baked cherry pie fruit, drizzled with cinnamon and vanilla. Cellar this puppy for a couple years, or decant for up to 24 hours now.
Looking more like a Syrah than Pinot Noir, the 2003 Flax Vineyard boasts a gorgeous bouquet of black raspberries, blackberries, and sweet cassis. Rich and full-bodied on the palate, with high extract, tangy acidity, firm tannin, and an inky style, it requires 1-2 years of bottle age, and should keep for a decade. 91+ (RP)
Full ruby. Aromas of blackberry, blueberry, violet, espresso and mocha. Dense, concentrated and powerful, with juicy acidity contributing to the impression of youthfulness. Not particularly sweet despite its flavor of dark chocolate. Finishes long, young and backward, with firm, ripe tannins. This, too, needs at least five years of additional bottle aging. 90+ (ST)
