(bottled at 14.1%; $46) This offers a step up in aromatic depth with a spice and sandalwood character to the fresh and ripe red pinot fruit nose that is followed by lush, round and supple flavors that are delicious though there is the barest edge to the otherwise perfumed and lingering finish. This will probably round out in the bottle and the benefit of the doubt is offered.

($46) Vivid red. Expressive aromas of black raspberry, Asian spices and fresh rose, with a nervy mineral underpinning. Lively and sharply focused, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and an exotic floral pastille quality. The finish strongly echoes the red fruit and spice notes and is strikingly persistent. This is already long on personality but I'd give it at least three more years of cellaring.

The 2007 Pinot Noir Russian River is even better, with deeper ruby color, sweeter black cherry and black raspberry fruit, forest floor, and hints of earth and herbs. It has nice tannin and a long finish.

Red berry fruits with a hint of cooked cherry on the nose leads to an extremely well balanced wine with enough tannin to last and sufficient fruit to make it enjoyable. Nice long finish as well.

Nose of cherry and a trace of earth. Palette displays some heat along with flavors of cherry, cola, mint, and vanilla. Exceptionally smooth texture. Long finish. An excellent wine for the price. Coming into maturity now so recommend drinking soon.

An absolute Pinot bomb on the nose...no mistaking...with dark cherries and currents, a light red hue in colour... with definite westside road characteristics...just great stuff here...epitome of pinot. Cheers!
