Aromas of black cherry, dried blueberries and violets. Structured and dense in the palate with a core of sweet black cherry and bittersweet chocolate. Extended finish of cassis and vanilla.
"The 2006 Pinot Noir Seven Springs Vineyard is dark ruby-colored with a nose offering violets, black cherry, and black raspberry. Dense (perhaps due to the whole clusters used in this cuvee but none of the others), with notes of black cherry preserves and cassis, this layered effort is intense and lengthy. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2011 to 2020. Penner-Ash's 2006 Pinot Noirs are uniformly top-notch, not a surprise given this husband-wife team's track record. Not to be over-looked, Penner-Ash also produces excellent Riesling, Viognier, and Syrah."
