The aromas of this bright ruby red wine leap out of the glass with lovely rose petal floral intensity blended with cherry and raspberry red fruit. This wine speaks volumes for elegance right of the bat. The flavor is full ripe red cherry fruit with surprising juicy centerdness. The bright fruit carries on long into the finish leaving a fresh red fruited impression. Seldom do we get a vintage that displays the "nervosity" one can enjoy from cool climate grown wines. It is this nervosity that lends one toward that "Pavlov's Dog"salivating effect that rare wines can obtain.
The 2007 Pinot Noir Spirithouse is another step up the quality ladder. It is a weighty effort that has plenty of sweet, succulent fruit, lively acidity, and enough ripe tannin to evolve for 2-3 years. Drink it from 2011 to 2019.
Zippy with acidity, offering raspberry and red cherry flavors that hint at lime as the sharp finish extends against a supple texture. Needs time. Best from 2010 through 2014.
