Winemaker's Notes

Black plum, white pepper, ripe blueberries, cinnamon bark, cigar box and dried rose petal are some of the aromatics from this explosive nose. The mouth is lush and full with ripe cherry and spicy cassis notes. The broad mid-palate leads to a surprisingly structured finish with good length.

Critical Acclaim

"The 2006 Pinot Noir Reserve is dark ruby-colored with an alluring perfume of pain grille, spice box, black cherry, and black raspberry. This is followed by a generous, full-bodied wine with mouth-coating fruit, a velvety texture, layers of flavor, and enough structure to evolve for 2-3 years. The rich, persistent finish goes on for nearly one minute. Give it 3-4 years to evolve and drink it from 2012 to 2022."
93 Points

"Velvety, harmonious and beautifully focused to show off its plum and currant flavors, delicately shaded with hints of cream, clove and coffee. This just keeps sailing on the finish. Drink now through 2016."

Gorgeous Orgeon Pinot. Bright fruit with smooth finish. Juicy on the nuse. Ponzi's reserve always delivers.
