    Winemaker's Notes:

    "I was bowled over by the depth, concentration, and seductive qualities exhibited by the 2002 Pinot Noir Elizabeth's Reserve. Never before had I witnessed a wine from this estate of such opulence. Medium to dark ruby-colored, it explodes from the glass with sweet blackberries and waxy dark cherries, spices, as well as a note of oak spice. Broad, ample, lush, and beautifully pure, its intense flavor profile is awash in red and black fruits. Projected maturity: now-2012."
    -Wine Advocate

    As usual, this is a wine that, though quite approachable in its youth, will only show its best after years of aging. Archetypal Lizzie flavors abound, a mix of pie-cherry and Indian spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, cardamom, etc). As the vines have gotten older, each vintage seems more structured, but the gentle handling ensures a graceful, elegant Pinot Noir. Given proper storage conditions, the wine should have at least a decades ageablility. The wines bright fruit will marry well with classic pairings for the variety, such as lamb and grilled salmon.
