    Winemaker's Notes:

    With the third vintage of Cerise Pinot Noir in 2007, we see once again, the heady perfume of dark berry spiciness mixed with an undercurrent of herbal intrigue. The sunny but cool and breezy days of this northern coastal valley offer great acidity with a fine backbone of ripe tannins that together provide a structural core balancing the concentrated black cherry mid-palate. A delicious and definite keeper!

    Critical Acclaim:

    Focused on a core of wild berry and strawberry fruit that's supple, elegant and medium-bodied, ending with a delicate aftertaste.

    Dry and elegantly silky, with a tangy edge of crisp acidity framing tannic flavors of sour cherry candy, pomegranates, sandalwood and cinnamon spice. Young and vigorous, and should develop in the bottle through 2013.

    There is a very mild trace of reduction on the nose that persists for 10 to 15 minutes so be sure to decant this first. Once the funk lifts, the nose reveals an earthy and ripe mix of plum, violet and dark red berry fruit aromas that precede rich, supple and nicely concentrated middle weight flavors that possess an attractive mouth feel and a dusty, sappy and again, moderately structured finish where there is both good balance and solid length. This needs time as it is not a wine to approach now, even with air.
