Burghound Author: Allen Meadows Issue: Issue 36

(from Santa Cruz Mountains fruit; 13.3 %). A ripe and distinctly floral nose that reveals light spice notes to the plum and dark berry fruit aromas that precede very rich, round and substantial flavors blessed with excellent dry extract that buffers the firm structural elements on the delicious, mouth coating and very serious finish. It's clear that the phenolics are completely mature and as such, this could be drunk now with pleasure (be sure to let it air for an hour first) or held for another 7 to 8 years first.

International Wine Cellar Author: Josh Raynolds Issue: Issue 144

($49) Deep red. Youthful cherry and dark berry skin aromas slowly pick up anise, cola and dried rose nuances. Firm, refreshingly bitter cherry and blackcurrant flavors are framed by dusty tannins and pick up a tangy mineral note with air. The tannins add grip to the very long, chewy finish. Give this at least an hour of decanting or a few more years in the cellar. There's a Nuits-Saint-Georges-like austerity and structure to this wine that's pretty intriguing.

With aeration, the firm, structured 2007 Pinot Noir Alpine Vineyard (a 10-acre site planted at a 1,400 foot elevation) offers up notions of sweet and sour cherries, earth, and forest floor. Medium to full-bodied and pure, with good acidity and texture, this impressive Pinot will benefit from several years of aging. One-hundred percent whole clusters were used in its upbringing.

Fragrant with an array of cherries and raspberries. Structure and balance with rich tones of earth, wild mushroom, spice and plums.
