Papapietro Perry Peters Vineyard Pinot Noir 2003
from Sonoma County, California
This well-structured wine rides the stylistic line between richness and elegance. It has a smoky, toasty nose touched with just the right amount of enticing berry aroma. The core cherry, stone fruit and cola flavors are infused with a well-integrated measure of spiciness. Bright acidity gives this complex wine a backbone that delivers a satisfying black cherry finish.
Located a few miles west of Sebastopol not far from the Sonoma coast, Peters Vineyard is the backbone of our production. Planted with Pommard and 777 clones, Peters Vineyard produces the fruit for our first vineyard-designate wine. This former apple orchard is an ideal location for Pinot Noir, with cool ocean fog in the mornings and evenings and hot sunny days that bring the best flavor out of the grapes. We enjoy a close relationship with grower, Randy Peters, working together to produce this wonderful wine.
"...Here is a textbook example of the kind of deep fruit and juicy succulence that can only be found in the finest Pinot Noir, and the wine is uncannily successful in tempering its obvious ripeness with layers of sweet red cherries and perfectly measured oak..."

Everything shouts quality from the etched bottle to the first sip and lasting impression.
I have to say this is clearly one of my favorite Pinot Noir's.
Somewhere between medium ruby and light crimson with complex but true varietal aroma and distinct flavor of cherry, rasberry and hint of rhubarb to me...
