($50) Bright ruby. Highly aromatic nose displays fresh raspberry, cassis, candied violet, tobacco and smoky minerals. Tightly focused red and dark berry flavors are medium in weight, with chewy tannins adding grip. Finishes with good tangy lift and repeating minerality. This needs some time to unwind.

Previously recommended, but no tasting note given.
One of my favorite California wine producers, Wells Guthrie, like a champion truffle-hunting dog, seems to unearth top vineyards for his wines. The other 2006 Pinots I tasted, as well as the 2007s, all seem austere, rather attenuated in the finish, and essentially angular. While obviously less charming and fleshy in their youth, I doubt they will age any better since there is not a whole lot of flesh on them.
