Bright red. Deeper and darker in character than the Aidan, displaying black raspberry and cherry qualities and notes of licorice and black tea. Then brighter in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a touch of bitter cherry pit. Impressively focused pinot with strong finishing cut and persistent spiciness.

Still young and unevolved, the 2008 Pinot Noirs are restrained and slightly less impressive and concentrated than the 2007s at a similar age. They all appear to have outstanding potential with the exception of the generic Russian River cuvee. The latter wine possesses lots of sweet cola-infused berry fruit. The 2008s are softer than the 2007s. The heat spikes that occurred in September appear to have given these wines a more forward, plump style without the definition and minerality found in the 2007s.

Rough-hewn, but rich and intense, offering complex, concentrated raspberry, blackberry and cherry fruit that is pure and spicy. A touch of anise and red licorice mark the finish.
