Serving as something of a bridge between Chasseur's elegant Sylvia's and opulent Freestone Station bottlings, this lovely wine exhibits the best of both with its complex expressions of cherries and violets and perfectly fit oak. It is full and fleshy in feel with a terrific sense of concentration and just the right touch of tannin for structural grip, and, like both of its show-stopping partners, it is absolutely delicious right now yet will develop in bottle for a good many years. *Three Stars*
Bill Hunter also demonstrates a sure hand with Pinot Noir. (RP)
Deep red. Musky, ripe aromas of red and dark berries are distinctly wild, with subtle anise and dried flowers adding complexity. Chewy raspberry and blackcurrant flavors offer very good depth and richness, with supple tannins contributing shape. A luscious, rich style of pinot, but it doesn't lack for energy or clarity. In fact, I'd hold it for a few more years. (ST) 90+
Offers an initial burst of ripe wild berry and raspberry fruit before turning more subtle and elegant, with a hint of nutmeg and cedar. Complex, with fine-grained tannins. (JL)
