Pinot Noir has a beguiling mix of black cherry and plum fruit with a touch of just-turned earth and thyme aromas. Take a sip and its Carneros terroir serves the wine's generous blackberry, spice and herb flavors on a refreshing, and at the same time silky, ride across the palate.
International Wine CellarGood full red. Pretty, floral aromas of raspberry and strawberry. Round and sweet, with a slightly edgy sweet/sour character to the varietally accurate red berry flavors. A bit less sappy and convincing than the 2005 release was at a similar stage, but this is round and persistent, with fine-grained tannins.
