International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93($76) Bright ruby-red. An intensely perfumed bouquet displays black raspberry, star anise, potpourri and minerals. Lively but concentrated red and dark berry flavors are given spine by juicy acidity and gain sweetness in the middle palate. The spicy quality returns on the sharply focused, strikingly pure finish. This wine's nuanced fruit is really impressive. This finished with a low pH of 3.38 and 7 g/l of acidity.Author: Josh RaynoldsIssue: May/June 2010
Wine Spectator | Rating: 92Firm, intense, fresh and vibrant, with a minerally baseline to the ripe cherry, blackberry, sage and cedar notes. Full-bodied and firm, this is in need of aeration. The finish impresses with a long, persistent push of concentrated flavors.Author: James Laube
Wine Advocate | Rating: 92The dense 2007 Pinot Noir Aidan (400 cases produced) comes from the Wild Rose Vineyard, which is planted with Dijon clones 115 and 777. It reveals a dark ruby/purple color, good acidity, a tight but promising bouquet of sassafras, sweet black cherry, raspberry, and plum fruit, earthy undertones, and subtle wood smoke. It possesses significant structure as well as aging potential.Author: Robert Parker
Self | Rating:Can't imagine it being any better. Dark, cassis, plum. Long legs and rich on the paletteAuthor: Victrola
