Fairly tannic, this lovely Pinot Noir has a dusty, dry astringency that tamps down the palate's enjoyment of the fruit, and suggests aging. Yet the vast flavors range from cherries, pomegranates and persimmons to the cola and Asian spices that always characterize WS Pinots. Best after 2010 and for six years or so.
Medium red. Fresh raspberry and candied cherry aromas are complicated by tobacco and Asian spices. Juicy red and dark berry flavors shows a liqueur-like concentration but are also impressively energetic and pure. Becomes chewier and riper on the finish, which leaves a strong note of bitter cherry behind.
"Crisp acidity and an almost primary character still seem to characterize the 2006 Pinot Noir Bucher Vineyard, which is made largely from newer Dijon clones. It is medium ruby, has tart acids, and a spicy finish.
