Whoa, buddy! I tasted this wine immediately after our 2000 Extended Tirage and was expecting to be underwhelmed after enjoying such a noble wine as our ET. Result: this may be the most interesting, complex, and balanced Pinot Noir we've made here! The aromas jump out of the glass with bright vibrancy. Rich Bing cherry fruit, Santa Rosa plum, pie spices, cinnamon stick, with bouquet of forest loam and woods-edge Northwest bramble fruits make this a very seductive Pinot Noir. The mouth-feel is surprisingly silky and concentrated in texture. The middle palate has delightful juiciness of Bing cherry and red plum fruit. From middle to its long finish this wine is complexed by presence of spices reminiscent of bergamot and citrus oil, with a hint of the sort of herb component that evolves into floral aromas with age.
