Tasting Notes

94 points from Wine Enthusiast Magazine: "A gorgeous Pinot, all silk and satin in the mouth, showing great structural refinement and finesse. Yet there’s nothing shy about the flavors. This is sheer California fruit, intense in cherries, red currants, licorice and cola. It’s so opulent it tastes sweet, but the finish is bone dry. Drink now through 2012." (5/1/2008) 92 points from Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright red. Explosively perfumed, exotic bouquet of red berries, cherry, fresh rose and minerals. Gracefully balanced strawberry and raspberry flavors gain weight and take on a darker character with air, but retain impressive urgency and clarity. Finishes with impressive brisk persistence and an echo of raspberry." (Nov/Dec '07) 91 points from Allen Meadows' Burghound: "A ripe and slightly exotic nose of spiced tea, violets and deeply pitched red berry fruits merges into round, rich and generous medium weight plus flavors underpinned by a solid tannic spine and good acid/fruit/structure balance. There isn't quite, at least not yet, the same sheer depth as the Fe Ciega but it's not far off and both are very high quality efforts. Recommended." (Oct. 1, 2007)
