Tasting Notes

92 points from Wine Spectator: " Rich in texture, this harmonious wine shows ripe blackberry and cherry flavors shaded with pepper and licorice notes, mingling smoothly on the graceful finish. Drink now through 2013. 1,500 cases made." (Nov. 30, 2007) A heady combination of white pepper, dark chocolate and exotic spices highlight the plummy character of this Reserve Pinot Noir. Full on the palate, this wine bursts with red raspberry, blueberry and cassis flavors with a sweet, fruity mid-palate and soft, silky tannins on the finish. 91 points and a "Cellar Selection" from Wine Enthusaist: "Ponzi’s reserve shows plenty of well-defined muscle and sinew, with firm and slightly chewy flavors of red berry, cranberry and spicy red apple. The tannins are relatively smooth and ripe, and the flavors have a pleasing resonance as they weave through the finish. There have been some vintages where the new oak seemed a bit heavy-handed; not so here. This wine has the structure and balance to reward some years in the cellar." (2/1/2008)
