This calls for a great prime rib, or maybe a roast rack of pork.”?Narsai David, In the Kitchen with Narsai, KCBS Radio, December 18, 2006/n91 points?“This one offers aromas of black cherry and brown spices as well as a whiff of earthiness that is a beautiful complexity. It also deepened and revealed more layers and nuance after decanting.”?Robert Whitley, winereviewonline.com, November 21, 2006/n93 points?“A m‚lange of grapes from five Russian River Valley vineyards including Meredith, Klopp and Olivet Lane, this is a powerfully lush Pinot. Packed full of dark berry richness, it’s as seductive as Pinot gets.”?Leslie Sbrocco, winereviewonline.com, September 5, 2006/n?“Exceptional”?Ronn Wiegand, Restaurant Wine, Issue #116/n

Great aromas, finish and flavors. Able to hold up to a big meal, but also subtle enough to stand alone. Fabulous wine.
