Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2005 Stanly Ranch Pinot Noir features aromas of ripe strawberry and rhubarb with hints of rose water, vanilla and camomille tea, as lush red berries flavors mingle with notes of ruby grapefruit, smoke and pepper. This wine is supported by finely integrated tannins and a bright acid backbone, leading into a long, juicy finish."
– Winemaker, Laurie Hook

"Beringer has hit pay dirt with this wine, a realistically priced Pinot offering attractive dried herb, forest floor, berry fruit, and floral notes along with a medium body, good tannin, and a solid, chewy texture."
