Its extraordinary perfume of crushed rocks, flowers, black raspberries, and sweet cherries is followed by a dense, medium to full-bodied, rich, moderately tannic, long, persistent wine that will be even better with 1-2 more years of bottle age. (RP)
The usual varietal themes of ripe cherries are overlain in this attractive offering's deeply filled aromas by complexing touches of dusty rose, cedar and cream, and, in the mouth, the wine fully lives up to it promise with expansive and equally deep flavors of juicy fruit buttressed by finely fit, wholly complementary oak. While not at all tough or tannic, it firms up just enough at the end to suggest that in a couple of years, this good thing will be even better.
Grown at one of the pioneering vineyard sites on the coast near Occidental, this pinot is dark in color and fruit tone. For now, the scent of expensive oak dominates the wine, melding the ripe cherry fruit into rich barrel tones, finishing clean and generous. Given cellar time, this may develop more distinction in the fruit and vineyard character.
