Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Dark ruby/purple-hued with an extraordinary bouquet of flowers, forest floor, black cherry jam, currants, and blacker fruits, the 2005 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard displays a broad, savory, full-bodied mouthfeel, remarkable length, and stunning opulence. It is a gorgeous Pinot to drink now and over the next decade. This brilliant Pinot Noir is among the finest produced in California.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

Smooth and supple-textured, with a mix of smoky cherry, plum and raspberry-laced fruit that's deep and plush, ending with a long, tight, harmonious finish. 406 cases made.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
