The very Burgundian 2005 Pinot Noir Selleck Vineyard is super. While it displays hints of menthol, bay leaf, and roasted herbs, it is dominated by black currants, kirsch, earth, and flowers. The wine has fresh porcini mushroom and forest floor notes reminiscent of a grand cru from Burgundy’s Morey St.-Denis. Full-bodied, rich, and impressive, this wine should drink well for at least 12-15 years. (RP)
Lush and immediately attractive, this Pinot seduces the palate with ripe berry, cola, herb tea, vanilla and spice flavors and lots of toasty oak. It's a silky wine, with a fancy structure that calls for fine food. But it's also young, with a precocious feeling. Try holding until 2010, and it should develop through 2015.
Bright medium red. Dried cherry and illicit herbs on the nose, with suave floral and smoky mineral qualities adding complexity. Tightly wound redcurrant and cherry flavors are underscored by dusty minerals and given grip by fine-grained tannins. Finishes brisk and spicy, with a strong note of botanical herbs. This reminded me of a traditional Morey Saint-Denis. (JR)
This is clearly riper yet remains fresh and bright with stem and floral red berry fruit aromas that are followed by rich, full and relatively big flavors underpinned by ripe tannins and fine length as well as solid depth. There is some warmth and this doesn't have the same energy and sense of vibrancy as the best in the range but it manages to carry its alcohol with reasonable grace. Solid rather than sensational.
