International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 128

($70) Good deep red-ruby. Liqueur-like aromas of raspberry, blackberry, dark cherry and cola, with a slight roasted nuance. Supersweet, supple and very ripe, with layered flavors of strawberry, raspberry, creme de cassis and candied licorice complicated by a note of chocolate liqueur. This very ripe and rich pinot reminded me of a 2003 Burgundy. Very long on the aftertaste, with lush tannins. This is 14.9% alcohol, vs. 14.7% for the Southing and Botella bottlings. An excellent set of pinots from this producer.

The 2004 Pinot Noir Ten (from ten separate clones) possesses a deep ruby/purple-tinged color, sweet cranberry, raspberry, and cherry fruit, and a hint of toasty oak in the background. The most closed as well as the biggest and richest of this trio, it will benefit from another 12 months of cellaring, and should drink well for a decade or more. An impressive example of Pinot Noir, it offers further evidence of the Santa Rita Hills' potential.

Riveting aromas, intense, vivid yet elegant and supple, with rich blueberry, huckleberry and wild berry flavors that unfold gracefully, gaining complexity, depth and nuance. The flavors reveal a wonderful fresh earth and mineral edge on the finish. 1,100 cases made.

Color: Perfectly Burgundy red, purple-red core, red edges Nose: Forest floor, camphor, black cherry, cinnamon spice. Palate: Full, yet supple black and red fruits: Blackberry, cherry liquor. On the bigger side, but not palate exhausting. Great wine!

If you like big fruity syrah, you will like this pinot. Not sure if there is anything in Bourgogne like this, but it's resemblance to Bourgogne or OR pinot is not noticeable.
