This is a delicious Pinot Noir, but I have to say it suffers in the shadow of the stupendous 2005. Ripe and full, though softer and much less layered than the 2005, this wine again shows a classy Burgundian nose, and ripe flavors of cherry, berry, spice, cola, and flowers. Silky smooth and seductive texture, clean as a whistle. - HK 2008-10-02
