(Top 100 of 2009) Bright and juicy, with lively acidity and a streak of distinctive minerality running through the raspberry and floral flavors, lingering on the refined finish.
The 2007 Pinot Noir Estate Seven Springs Vineyard spent 14 months in 33% new French oak. Dark ruby-colored, it sports an enticing perfume of smoke, cinnamon, allspice, black cherry, and black raspberry. Medium-bodied and silky textured, it has plenty of savory fruit, an elegant personality, and excellent length. Enjoy it over the next 8 years.
This well-built, savory wine starts with a wisp of crushed red raspberries beneath notes of lavender, tar and smoke. With firm, gripping tannins, it's a little tight at the moment; cellar it before serving with herb-roasted pork loin.
Powerful vanilla scents rise from the glass, but the fruit, even in this difficult vintage, comes out immediately. It’s tart and sharp, with a strong herbal component, and the wine snaps into focus quickly with fruit, acid, tannin, herb and vanilla in equal proportion. Firm and tight, still quite young, this wine needs decanting and/or further bottle age to show its best.
