"Aromatic, with pretty rose petal-scented raspberry flavors that linger with finesse. Drink now through 2013. 2,500 cases made."
"Anne Amie’s medium ruby-colored 2008 Pinot Noir Cuvee A offers an attractive nose of spicy red fruits. On the palate it displays savory flavors, a forward personality, good balance, and a medium-long finish. Drink this good value over the next 4-5 years. "
The Wine Advocate
"This moderately-priced Pinot Noir spent 10 months in mostly neutral French oak. Still quite young, it reveals primary fruit flavors of red apple, red pear and raspberry. Firm and juicy, with just a hint of toast. "
