Very dark in color, 2006 Witness Tree "Vintage Select" Pinot Noir is packed with aromas of black fruits, vanilla and exotic spices. On the palate, dense "jammy" fruit flavors are balanced by a substantial contribution of new French oak, tannin, and acidity. Enjoy this wine with traditional beef and lamb dishes as well as smoked salmon, pork, and cheese. Given its depth, concentration, complexity and structure, this wine will be tempting to drink it in its youth, but will also continue to develop in the bottle and provide rewarding drinking for many years to come.
"The 2006 Pinot Noir Vintage Select was aged in 100% new French oak for 10 months. Dark ruby-colored, the aromatics include pain grille, spice box, and an amalgam of black fruits. This is followed by a silky textured wine with excellent integration of oak, tannin, and acidity. This dense, layered effort should evolve for 1-2 years and be at its peak from 2010 to 2018.
