    A deeply pitched nose of spiced plum and dark berry fruit aromas complements the sweet, fresh and nicely focused middle weight flavors that have good weight and punch to them if only average depth, at least at this point. The noticeably warm finish is slightly edgy yet because there is good mid-palate concentration, this will probably round off after a year in bottle.

    Dense and rich with underbrush and black fruit characteristics as well as additional body and muscle, the 2005 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard boasts fragrant aromatics and long, heady flavors. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years.

    I think Adams candor regarding how he handled this vintage was evident in the profile of this wine. It was by no means offensive or displeasing, but it was simply superficial from start to finish. Notes of candied watermelon, pressed pomegranate and an under-card of earth played second fiddle to somewhat obvious traces of residual sugar. Simple, somewhat sweet and under-whelming for both the vineyard and the producer. Get 'em next time Adam.

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.
