    Winemaker's Notes:

    "Very dark in color, 2002 Witness Tree "Vintage Select" Pinot Noir is packed with aromas of black fruits, vanilla and exotic spices. On the palate, dense "jammy" fruit . avors are balanced by a substantial contribution of new French oak, tannin and acidity. Enjoy this wine with traditional beef and lamb dishes as well as smoked salmon, pork and cheese. Given its depth, concentration, complexity and structure, this wine will be tempting to drink it in its youth, but will continue to develop in the bottle and provide rewarding drinking for many years to come."
    -Wine Spectator

    Wow! This is serious Pinot Noir. Incredibly dark ruby in color, it almost stains the glass. The aroma profile is loaded with dark fruit character - black cherry, plum, and black raspberry come to mind, with spice and coffee hiding in the background. When you taste it, a crashing wave of intense fruit, spice and a hint of earth explode upon your palate. The finish lingers on. The wine is perfectly balanced - it has power, but does not overpower. It has great structure, and as a result we feel it will age beautifully for many years to come. This is an "iceberg" wine. As amazing as it already is, there is much more lurking beneath the surface which will only be revealed with time.
