    Winemaker's Notes:

    A dark, rich Carneros Pinot Noir with elegant aromas of cherry, raspberry, roses and milk chocolate. Powerful yet refined, this wine displays a silky texture wrapped around layers of vibrant fruit which is enhanced by spicy notes of cedar, clove, bay and cumin. Excellent structure provides both mid-palate weight and a long persistent finish. The wine's bright acidity bodes well for its long-term aging potential. Although delicious now this is a big, concentrated Pinot Noir that will benefit from additional time in bottle.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Three-plus years in the bottle have been kind to this Pinot, letting the parts meld together. The oak is knitting with the cherry, raspberry and cola fruit, resulting in a creamy-sweet mouthfeel. Very nice, and should hold over the next 4–6 years.

    I had my doubts as I sampled the first bottle, but I have received many complements when I have shared this with friends. It is a Carneros Pinot of the first order.

    Tasted twice ~ Although still quite fruity it at least tasted like a Pinot Noir this time (vs. A Sirah last time). It had the Pinot nose that I can never get enough of. The additional year was kind to this wine, and I think it had another year or two left in it if one desired to wait. It did trail off slightly toward the end of the bottle, so I believe we opened it at the right time. Good stuff, but I'm still a bigger fan of the old-world style.
