(From 2006 Vintage) Brilliant Pinot Noir with vibrant plum, cherry and molasses aromas that excite your senses. In the mouth, juicy pomegranate and plum fruit flavors are kissed by minerals, fresh acidity and supple tannins.
(From «nv» Vintage) Dark, deep garnet color. Sumptuous aromas of ripe berries, vanilla and spicy oak. Upon entry, the mouth is coated with a velvety richness, but the acidity enlivens the weight and pops the flavors. The senses will pick up light roasted almond, cranberry, raspberries with ever so a hint of barnyard complexity--earthy and gamey. Underlined with a sweet oak character, mocha and cola. An extremely layered wine both in structure and flavor.
christmas 2010, used aerating filter. blend of coasts, but I found it to be more central coast like. earthy in tone not too bright.
