The 2010 Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge Vineyard is laced with freshly cut flowers, mint, roses and sweet red berries, all of which are woven together in a fabric of unusual class. Sweet floral notes lead to a long, sensual finish underpinned by lively acidity. This feminine, totally sensual Pinot possesses striking overall balance and tons of finesse. The Occidental has the highest acidity of the 2010 Pinots, which should help it age gracefully over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020. (AG)
Good full red. Crushed cherry, raspberry and a pungent mint oil quality on the nose (Brown described it as pennyroyal). Then supple, juicy and delicate on the palate, with a light touch to the perfumed flavors of red fruits, blood orange and spices. There's an almost citrussy element here that's very refreshing. Finishes savory and long, with salty minerality. This wine normally shows darker fruit flavors but I find this vintage fascinating. (ST)
A beautifully fresh, bright and complex nose of mix red berries, spice and violets leads to attractively rich and plush flavors that possess excellent complexity and fine length on the impeccably well-balanced finish. I very much like the delivery here as there is good concentration as well as good detail plus terrific persistence. This is one of those wines that is so vibrant that it's a pleasure to drink now but at the same time it's clear that there is so much underlying material that it should age well too. *Outstanding*
