Winemaker's Notes:

The 2004 vintage of this wine was ranked #7 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 2006

This Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is pure, balanced, lush and focused. Bright, yet rich cherries are on the forefront with fresh ripe raspberries, pomegranate and a hint of strawberry developing throughout the palate, which rest generously on the top of the tongue. The lingering finish wraps around your tongue and palate with focus and freshness.

My Notes:
