In recent years, Precious Mountain Vineyard has provided Bob Cabral with some of his most glorious fruit. Tremendous in flash and depth, it offers compelling flavors of raspberry and cherry, accented by sweet, smoky oak. There’s such complexity in the acid and tannin structure, and in the earthy, stony, spicy nuances, that you find something new to love with every sip. This masterpiece is fabulous now, and will develop bottle complexity over the next 15 years, at least.
Deep ruby. Dark berries, cherry-cola and incense on the intensely perfumed nose. Sweet, palate-staining black raspberry and cherry compote flavors are lifted by zesty white pepper and pomegranate notes; plenty of power and energy here. Sweet floral pastille and spicecake notes linger on the very long, seamless finish.
*Two stars* Intense, keenly defined, very pure, ripe-cherry fruit is overlain by wisps of smoke and a deft bit of crème brûlée sweetness in the wonderfully expressive aromas of this complex, decidedly refined Pinot, and the wine's composed flavors follow suit with deep and persistent fruit leading the way. A touch of fine-grained tannin comes on and merges with the wine's sleek acidity to provide good structure and length, and, if it shows no hint of raggedness, this one is so very well-balanced that it can only get better with age.
The 2010 Pinot Noir Precious Mountain Vineyard is another of the more interesting wines in the range. Weightless and effortless on the palate, the 2010 stands out for its crystalline nuance and purity. Sweet dark cherries, flowers, mint and crushed rocks all grace the exquisite, nuanced finish. (AG)
Crisp and snappy, with vibrant black cherry and blackberry framed by grainy, minerally tannins, but the flavors push through. Needs time.
