(1996 Vintage) Deep, extracted plum and black cherry flavors layered with notes of toast, spice, coffee, mint and tobacco. Lean and elegant with a rich mouth-feel, this Julia's Pinot will gain interest and complexity for years to come. Dave Guffy, Winemaker
Wine Enthusiast(2006 Vintage)
Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wines(2005 Vintage) Sweet oak smelling of roasted vanilla beans with a hint of creme caramel joins with ripe cherries and whispers of raspberry in this wine's medium-volume and fairly open aromas, and that same sense of openness shows up in the wine's fairly rounded, slightly soft-edged texture and flavors. On the whole, it is well-balanced and ready to enjoy today.
