    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 2007 vintage was memorable in this area and this bottling shows the intense, generous black cherry fruit of Marimar Torres' best years, with hints of rose petals, clove, and peat from the elegant oak. On the palate it is rich and smooth, with silky mouthfeel and nicely integrated, supple yet firm tannins. It shows great aging potential but is drinking beautifully now.

    Critical Acclaim:

    From a high-density planting six miles from the sea, this vintage of Mas Cavalls blends a California heritage clone (it's 56 percent Pommard, which creates some of the most transparent and compelling pinots in the right far-coast conditions) with a Dijon clone (115, which contributes to the deep well of dark cherry fruit). The fruits is sweet but the wine is not sweet, layered in licorice scents, Christmas spice, redwood frond and fern - a vinous evocation of the coast that has the power to improve your modd the way ocean air might. (It improved my mood just to smell this wine, particularly a day or two after it was first opened.) It develops beautifully - remarkably tight in its mineral-inflected tannin - an ethereal memory of the Anderson Woods.

    Stunningly delicious. A real dazzler in the mouth, offering complex tiers of cherries, raspberries, sweet vanilla, rose petals, cinnamon and clove and smoky sandalwood. This richness is perfectly balanced by crisp, coastal acidity and a hint of tannin astringency. Hard to keep from drinking now, but it should develop over the next six years.

    This is an excellent Pinot. Smooth and great texture. I plan on buying more of this wine.

    I wish I had bought more--a deeper color turning to brick at the edges. Earth, spice, every nice.
