SKU: 89337-2003-750-3A
  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($80) Good bright medium red. Aromas of black cherry, licorice, herbs and charred oak; more complex than the RRV but also more musclebound. Then structured and firm-edged but a bit ungiving on the palate, with flavors of raspberry and bitter chocolate. Finishes with slightly dry tannins.

    Simply delicious, with wonderful aromas of sandalwood, exotic spices and a rich, vibrant core of juicy black cherry, blackberry, wild berry and boysenberry fruit that's enlivened by vivid acidity yet displays a wonderful density that gives it a long, intricate aftertaste.

    The 2003 Pinot Noir Ryan offers attractive sweet sassafras, plum, berry, and compost-like notes reminiscent of a grand cru Burgundy from the Cotes de Nuits. The plums, cherries, and sweet, broad impression continue on the palate.

    Amazing Pinot! Lots of fruit on the nose. Well integrated and very silky on the palate. Drinking great now

    This producer is exceptional from top to bottom, and the cream of the 2003 Ryan vineyard soared to the top this evening! This young pinot was so nuanced, layered and seductive, exposing notions of decayed leaves, violets and black tea through the nose. The palate was really showy, but tantalizingly ethereal and always mirrored a sense of pristine symmetry. Caramel, raspberry, blueberry and mineral flavors funneled through the mouth w/ absolute precision and grace. Consensus wine of the night as it left us all breathless.
