(13.6% alcohol; these vines were planted in 1998): Good dark red. Red and dark fruits complicated by musky coffee, orange peel and spices on the nose. Sappy and concentrated, with ripe, harmonious acidity giving shape and lift to the flavors of black cherry, pomegranate, flowers and spices. Boasts lovely ripeness and a light touch, finishing with very fine tannins and excellent length. Impeccably balanced pinot noir, perhaps the best vintage to date for this bottling.Author: Stephen Tanzer
