  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 85

    ($26) Medium red. Dull, rather diffuse aromas of raspberry, chocolate and underbrush. Supple and spicy in the mouth, with a simple raspberry flavor. Offers good texture but needs more freshness to buffer its alcohol. Finishes with soft tannins and a slight burn of alcohol. No shortage of material but lacks lift.

    Intense and vibrant, with a tight core of wild berry and blackberry, turning tannic and even a bit stemmy, with a chalky edge. Drink now. 1,020 cases made.

    The medium ruby-colored 2004 Pinot Noir Russian River possesses sweet scents of kirsch, strawberries, black cherries, plums, and an intriguing earthy component. Displaying more grip, tannin, and structure, it can be drunk now, but should last for 3-5 years.

With an impressive portfolio of some of the best Pinot Noir vineyards in California, Adam and Dianna Lee have created quite a sensation. The Lees source from 27 different vineyards, and work closely with their growers to ensure the conditions in the vineyard lay a strong foundation for the resulting wines. Vineyards of note include Cargasacchi, Clos Pepe, Pisoni, and the famed Garys' and Rosella's. From these vineyards, individual blocks and clones are vinified separately to give more flexibility at blending time. All the Pinots are bottled unfined and unfiltered.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
