From a relatively old vineyard (planted in 1970), the 2007 Pinot Noir West Block is dazzling Pinot Noir. An extraordinary nose of kirsch, black raspberry, forest floor, crushed rock, and a floral cocktail of notes jump from the glass of this dense ruby/purple-colored wine. Full-bodied, with lots of glycerin, a fleshy mouthfeel, silky tannins, and terrific texture and length, this is probably my favorite Pinot Noir at this stage of its development. (RP)
A faint hint of earthy maturity adds a minerally edge to the ripe, firm, snappy blackberry and boysenberry flavors. Full-bodied and intense, with vibrant acidity and persistent length. (Web-2011) (JL)
*Outstanding* This arguably possesses the most elegant and most complete nose in the range with a restrained panoply of both red fruit and plum aromas that are cut with spice and wood notes that marry into seductively textured flavors that are balanced, long and mouth coating on the velvety finish.
Deep red. Black raspberry and cherry on the nose, with complicating notes of potpourri and smoky minerals. Weighty dark fruit flavors coat the palate, turning more tangy with aeration. The finish is broad, sweet and impressively long but not as defined as the other pinots. This was the slowest to open of this set, and should benefit from another few years of patience. (ST)
