(from Russian River Valley fruit - 390 cases produced and bottled at 14.4%; $45) A ripe yet elegant nose emphasizing spicy red berry aromas that lead to moderately robust, sweet and mouth coating flavors that possess ample dry extract that lends a real sense of texture and depth, particularly on the long and sappy finish. There is a trace of warmth that comes up as the serving temperature rises so be sure to keep the wine cool. Excellent juice crafted in a lush but serious style as this will certainly be capable of aging.

($45) Medium red. Spicy and intensely floral nose shows energetic red berry aromas and a suave mineral quality. Silky in texture, with bright raspberry and strawberry flavors gently braced by soft acids. Finishes long, spicy and refreshingly brisk. Sussman advises that "this will really sing with six months in the bottle," as it has never seen much air.

The 2005 Pinot Noir Alberigi exhibits medium ruby color, gamey, earthy, allspice notes, with some sassafras and red currant nuances. Medium-bodied, it has crisp acidity, a sweet, savory mid-palate, and a fine finish.

Offers a mix of delicate cherry and raspberry flavors, with more prominent mineral and pebble notes. The tannins lay out a nice baseline, ending with a dry, dusty aftertaste. 390 cases made.

Still could use a little more bottle time. Very straight forward Pinot, however. Showing well. Full fruit flavors most of the red varietal...very bright.
