Tasting Notes

95 points Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine: "A compelling combination of bright, ripe cherry fruitiness, dried violets and creme brulee oak jumps from the glass, and it finds an exacting parallel in its deep, full-bodied, fleshy, velvety flavors. Long and rich on the palate and balanced despite its ripe bent, this brilliant effort is almost too easy to like right now for its sweet fruit flavors and its seeming openness, yet its combination of unmatched depth and underlying structure guarantee that it will handsomely reward any who resist its current charms and lay it away for a half decade or more." (10/03) According to the Wine Spectator: "Supple and smooth-textured, with ripe cherry, anise and fresh earth flavors commingling with spicy red fruit and mushroom and finishing with mature, fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2005. 340 cases made." (09/03) According to Robert Parker: "The big, generous, medium ruby-colored 2000 Pinot Noir High Plains's (265 cases) fragrant, aromatic display of cola and black cherry fruit, herbs, and loamy soil scents is followed by a lean, steeliness on the palate... It should be consumed over the next 4-5 years." (08/02)
