"The 2002 Pinot Noir Bondi Home Ranch reveals a dark ruby color, tart acidity, and a big, sweet nose of red and black currants, lavender, plum, and sweet currant fruit with a hint of fig and soy in the finish. It is a beauty and has put on significant weight since last year."

Offers an exhilarating sugar/acid balance. Finishes with superb sweetness, noble tannins and outstanding persistence."
