The dark fruit tones of blackberry and cassis that dominate the rich aromas of 2005 Emery Pinot Noir are followed by suggestions
of mocha and violets. Blackcurrant carries through to the flavors, complemented by blueberry, plum and cherry. This is a complex,
powerful wine that is also smooth in the mouth with fine acid balance and soft tannins — a truly delicious combination which
prompted the comment "my taste buds jumped!" from one member of the tasting panel.
The 2005 Emery will improve for 3 to 5 years from the
date of release and age well for at least 10. Pair with game dishes such as venison with juniper berries, and berry glazed pheasant
or baked winter squash and roasted root vegetables. Open at least two hours before serving.
