    Winemaker's Notes:

    A full purple magenta color. The nose is lush with ripe dark Pinot fruits. Plum, black cherry, licorice and spice dominate while a lovely smokiness from high quality French oak adds dimension.

    The palate is a powerful Pinot statement, rich dark, sweet fruits fill the mouth and layer as the palate builds. Chocolate, mocha and licorice support the fruit intensity while fine, ripe, powdery tannins add weight, richness and length.

    A definite keeper, this wine has the structure to age for 8 to 10 years.

    "Good full red. Aromas of dark raspberry, bitter chocolate and wild spices, with more floral lift than the bottling from Marlborough. Suave and fine-grained but also serious and dense, with suggestions of raspberry liqueur and dark chocolate. A nicely concentrated young Pinot Noir with plenty of palate presence, not to mention good sappy life in the mouth. Finishes firmly tannic and persistent. I'd hold this for a year or two before pulling the cork."

    The best Pinot Noir we've had in a while. Plenty of fruit, but not too much. Subtle complexity.

    Good pinot for the price. Not much here in terms of fruit or acidity, but a good bottle for a week night.
