This Pinot Noir opens with compelling aromas of fresh red fruits, orange blossom, sandalwood and spice. The nose is captivating and complex with further notes of blood orange, mulling spices, red plum, flint and delicate floral characters. The palate is a profusion of fresh berry and mineral notes and moves through layers of red and black fruits and spice. The 2004 Looney Vineyard shows tremendous character and focus and is a well knit example of purity of fruit, lively acidity and succulent, integrated tannins. It is ready to be enjoyed now, however may improve with cellaring over the next three to six years.
