($75) Vivid ruby. Exotically perfumed bouquet of red and dark berries, lily of the valley, soy sauce and smoky minerals. Palate-staining black raspberry and candied cherry flavors are deepened by a note of black cardamom and pick up a sexy rose pastille quality on the back end. The finish repeats the red berry note and lingers with excellent clarity and spicy persistence. This is complex enough to drink right now.

The dense, elegant, dark ruby/purple-hued 2007 Pinot Noir Hyde Vineyard Carneros comes from primarily the Calera and Pommard clones. It offers up notes of rose petals, plum sauce, raspberries, kirsch, cola, and earth followed by a rich, full-bodied finish.
Author: James Laube
Intense and full-bodied, this is focused on a core of loamy earth, dried berry, sage and mineral. Complex and concentrated, ending with a dry edge to the tannins.

what a fantastic pinot. Had at the winery and had to get some more. The complexity and depth really show with great touches of mineral, black cherry, and cedar. Delicious.
