The opaque ruby/purple-colored 1999 Pinot Noir West Block (a vineyard planted in 1969 and 1970) boasts a sumptuous nose of allspice, blackberries, cherries, and toast. This multi-layered Pinot Noir exhibits uncanny balance and purity, an unctuous texture, and a 40-second finish. It is a dazzling effort. (RP)
*Best Buy* Dusty. Chinese black tea, blackstrap molasses, anise, allspice. Tons of spice rub, Chinese 5 spice, a hint of cherry. Mouth: Fruity sweetness that quickly recedes behind a wall of tannins. Spicy. Dried cherry, sour cherry candy. Rich, big, intricate, nuanced.
Rich, intense, beautifully balanced, with ripe, vibrant black cherry, toasty oak, sage and floral notes, finishing with tightly wound focus.
Very high-toned red cherry and raspberry fruit aromas plus a touch of earth are followed by round, sweet, intense and acceptably detailed flavors underpinned by moderate and ripe tannins plus lively acidity. This is not particularly complex though it's by no means one-dimensional either and there's enough material here that this may very well develop additional complexity over time.
Saturated red-ruby. Raspberry confiture, exotic woodsmoke and milk chocolate on the nose, along with a whiff of herbs. Then fresher and brighter in the mouth than the nose suggests, with high-pitched flavors of raspberry and spice. The faint green quality carries through on the palate. Finishes with firm-edged tannins and very good length.
