    Winemaker's Notes:

    Accessible aromas of cherry, coffee and cola are punctuated by nuances of maple syrup. Suggestions of mushrooms and forest floor complete this wine's ample nose. The 2002 Botella's aromas follow through in the mouth, being accentuated by bright cherry fruit on the front of the palate. A rich middle with ripe complex tannins leads to balanced acidity on the finish.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A superripe, rich and concentrated style, with lavish mocha-laced oak wrapped around tasty black cherry, plum and wild berry fruit flavors. Firmly tannic, which gives it a nice backbone. Finishes with a touch of heat, but also a long, plush, lingering aftertaste.

    Wine Spectator

    The 2002 Pinot Noir Botella exhibits a saturated ruby/purple color as well as a tight but promising nose of cassis, macerated black cherries, forest floor, and subtle oak. Although still primary, it is loaded. It possesses a rich, full-bodied, pure palate with seamlessly integrated acidity and tannin. A 30+ second finish adds to the joy. While accessible, another 1-2 years of cellaring will result in something quite special.
