To produce a single vineyard wine you should be convinced the vineyard has something unique and identifiable to offer. Brown Ranch Pinot Noir shows more rich earthiness and black fruit than the more red-fruit character of other lots in the Saintsbury cellar. A dark fruit intensity with stunning persistence is a hallmark of this wine.
A reticent red berry fruit nose remained so even with 30 minutes of air. The detailed and dusty medium-bodied flavors possess good depth and mid-palate concentration before terminating in a sappy, mouth coating and focused finish. This is clearly very young with a touch of youthful asperity in evidence but 4 to 6 years of cellar time should be amply rewarded.
