(from Anderson Valley fruit bottled at 14.4%) A fascinating nose that mixes somewhat incongruous elements yet is beguiling anyway as there are ripe and sweet red and blue berry fruit aromas, menthol, spice and what I can only describe as a baby/talcum powder nuance that complements the rich, forward, succulent and very stylish medium full flavors that are sappy and noticeably sweet on the solidly long, firm and dusty finish. This is deceptively structured as the succulence of the finish largely buffers the structure but it's there and this should age well.

($50) Good saturated ruby-red color. Aromas of almost liqueur-like black cherry and black raspberry. Fatter and more mouthfilling than the Cerise, with a more exotic aspect. Very ripe and nicely balanced, though. Finishes with substantial dusty tannins and a peppery nuance. Larger-scaled than the Cerise but less subtle and complex. From a cool vineyard and heavy clay soil, producing what Guthrie describes as a bigger style of pinot.
