WillaKenzie Estate Croft Vineyard Pinot Noir 2001
The 2001 Croft is a selection of Pinot Noir Pommard clone from a specific block, located at the entrance of the Croft vineyard where the fruit shows more intensity. Wines from the Croft Vineyard typically display a robust composition and tannin structure, making this wine a strong candidate for aging. Although it is approachable now, it will continue to round out and will benefit from another 6 months of bottle age. With cellaring, it can be enjoyed for the next 6 years. In addition to black fruits, this wine also shows very attractive red berry and cherry aromas and flavors, all delightfully complemented by smoky, toasty notes, and a hint of flowers and coffee. Bright acidity agreeably counterbalances the sweet attack of the fruit, while the structure of the tannins promises a chewy mouthful. Think steak and grilled vegetables or grilled ahi tuna as enjoyable food pairings for this full-bodied Pinot Noir.
The Napa Valley and Cabernet Sauvignon are so intrinsically linked that it is difficult to discuss one without thinking of the other. Although Cabernet has many important outposts throughout the wine world, nowhere else has it achieved such success (and, at the highest end, commanded such lofty prices) than in Napa. Here, it is responsible for bold, opulent, and dark-fruited wines with grippy tannins and a healthy dose of alcohol. The best examples can age for decades. Each of Napa’s smaller sub-AVAs imparts a different character to Cabernet, such as Rutherford’s famous dust or Stags Leap District's tart cherry flavors.
