As the second offering from the Mineral Springs estate, this wine offers an impressive combination of
power and purity. Its ruby-red hue previews a nose of wild strawberry and cranberry while the palate shows
bing cherry, red plum, clove and sandalwood with an undercurrent of black fruits reminiscent of
marionberry and crushed blackberry. Layer upon layer of depth and complexity are revealed in a velvety
texture and lingering finish. The wine tells the story of the vintage as well as the vineyard, delivering a core
of varietally correct Pinot Noir fruit characteristics coupled with a unique personality that can only come
from Mineral Springs.
"The 2006 Pinot Noir Mineral Springs has an especially expressive bouquet with floral notes, pain grille, damp earth, black raspberry, and blueberry. On the palate, the wine is layered, bordering on opulent. The savory, ripe, spicy dark fruit flavors persist into a lengthy, velvety textured finish. Give it 2-3 years and drink it from 2011 to 2020.
The Wine Advocate
"Crisp in texture, with strong spice and wet stone overtones to the solid cherry and berry flavors, lingering on the expressive meaty, peppery finish against silky tannins. Best from 2009 through 2014. 1,000 cases made."
"Medium red color. Zesty red berry aromas quickly give way to darker suggestions of spicy blackberry and blackcurrant. Fresh and precise, with impressive focus to the luscious red and dark berry flavors. Dusty minerality and gentle tannins frame the sweet, sappy berry flavors on the very long, suave, silky finish. This is extremely sexy wine."
