90 points from Burghound: "An extremely pretty and relatively high-toned red pinot fruit nose that is both airy and layered leads to fresh, vibrant and utterly delicious medium-bodied flavors that possess a sappy mouth feel and excellent depth and really the only nit is that there is a bit more warmth in evidence than what I typically find with this exceptionally dependable wine. Still, there is solid character and a real sense of place and this is definitely worth a look." (October 2006) Conventional wisdom has it that quality is incompatible with quantity. Pshaw! Try this rich, profound, and expressive product of the most fruitful vintage in nine years. (See the blending and clonal charts for details of provenance and complexity.) There is a depth to this wine that suggests the mystery touched upon by all true to site wines. Color of dark, velvet brocade. Upon opening, deep earth, loam aromas emerge against a background of bergamot, black tea, bing cherry, and oak. The big, broad mouth feel harbors flavors of umi plums and rich cherries. It is full and plush. Supported by healthy tannins, its nice acid balance is fully present through to the long, persistent finish. With air, pronounced pinot notes emerge: leather, tobacco, autumnal earth. The mid-palate broadens and the tannins integrate.
