Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 36

(Santa Lucia Highlands, 14.6%; $80) This is also impressively complex with broad-ranging aromas of red and blue pinot fruit, spice hints and a bass note of warm earth that is also picked up by the round, rich and supple flavors that possess reasonably good mid-palate concentration and a mouth coating and moderately tangy finish. This carries its alcohol well because while there is mild warmth, it's actually quite discreet.

International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 138

Good full deep red. Deep, musky aromas of raspberry, blueberry and smoked meat. Large-scaled and powerful but not especially sweet. There's huge fruit here but in a distinctly masculine style and in need of time in bottle. This will age on its sheer size and volume. The tannins are strong but fine-grained. Anne Moses describes this wine as more restrained at this early stage than the 2005 and notes that the fruit was picked late in what was a cool year for this site.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube

A savory style, with anise, herb, fresh earth and complex plum and wild berry fruit that's tight and slow to unfold, but gains depth and dimension. Best to decant or cellar short term.

Vinfolio Author: Vinfolio Team Issue: 168

Those who come looking for Pisoni Pinot Noir can never say they were not warned. The Pinots are always some of the most extracted and massively built in existence. Coming as it does from the original planting, Patz & Hall fruit benefits from over twenty years of viticultural history at this one-of-a-kind site. The track record here is impeccable. Consistently one of the most sought-after wines in the portfolio, the rarity of the large formats makes them an unequivocal opportunity to add to your collection of benchmark new world Pinot Noir.

The nose shows all of the beautiful aromatics - cherry, spicy strawberry and black raspberry that Pisoni is revered for. On the palate the flavors are smoothly defined with black cherry, clove and chocolate.
