Wine Review: Other than coming from a vineyard with a very cool name, this Pinot recently won a mini blind tasting flight that I reviewed. This wine is ruby colored and opens with a very attractive spicy black cherry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and well balanced. It also shows impeccably integrated acidity. It is quite savory with very tasty light raspberry flavors with notes of spice and black cherry. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins are nicely extended. This offering would be an excellent choice to serve with duck. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: The long, cool growing season of 2006 brought out the wild beauty & natural perfume of this wonderful vineyard site. The hallmark of great Pinot from such cool years is their vivid floral aromatics, bright fruit and silky mouthfeel. In the nose, the wine leads with wild cherry and cranberry, with overtones of lilac and forest floor. In the mouth, its lively cherry, raspberry and bright red licorice tones jump out, but the defining feature is its layers of silky tannins. It finishes long and bright with overtones of candied cherry and toffee. Though there’s no trace of roughness, even at its young age, this wine’s great balance and fruit give it a long future. Enjoy it with grilled sea bass or mushroom risotto.
