Produced from a south-facing hillside vineyard, the 2002 Pinot Noir Southing reveals a ruby/purple in addition to abundant aromas of sweet cherries, currants, and hints of plums and flowers. Made in a Cote de Beaune-like style, with sweet kirsch and black cherry flavors mixed with spicy wood as well as loamy soil notes, the Southing is more open and evolved than the Botella. Drink it over the next 5-7 years.

Don't expect this to be a Burgundian-style Pinot or you'll be disappointed. This is greatly extracted - big, brawny and more akin to Shiraz than Pinot. Still, it's a compelling wine. Goes well with strongly seasoned, grilled summer fare. Decant - it will let the wine breathe and uncoil a bit. This wine needs it.
