Earthy cinnamon and almost charcuterie notes, along with some black tea aromas jump from the glass of the medium to dark ruby-colored 2006 Pinot Noir Mount Carmel. This is a lean, austere, but stunningly complex wine that again comes across like a grand cru Burgundy from the southern sector of the Cote de Nuits. Give this wine several years of cellaring and drink it over the following decade.
