Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 95

Absolutely prodigious, the 2008 Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard, from the home estate, has notes of plum sauce, tea-smoked duck, black currant, and black cherry. An extraordinary perfume soars from the glass of this dense, plum/purple-colored wine. With compelling individuality, a layered, full-bodied palate, and a multi-dimensional personality, this is a deep, rich, silky-textured wine to drink now and over the next 5-6 years, possibly a lot longer.

Full-bodied, ripe and fleshy, offering pure and balanced plum and black cherry fruit. Easy-drinking, ending with a touch of toasty oak.

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.
