Winemaker's Notes

Color: Ruby red.

Aromas: Lifted blackberry and dark cherry overlaid with spicy aromas from oak maturation.

Palate: Supple approach showing generous, dark cherry flavors, and silky tannins balanced with spicy oak. A hint of dry herb, savory complexity completes the palate.

Cellaring: A wine blended for early drinking, but it will age gracefully over the next three years.

I've tried the 2004 and found it a well balanced and pleasant wine. It does not leap out at you with the expected Pinot Noir characteristics. In fact it tastes more like a Burgundy blend of Pinot, Gamay, and even Grenache. It is such a wonderful balance of fruit, tannins, oak, and velvety smooth on the palate. Well worth the money. Better than Brancott's more expensive Pinots.
