Grapes originate from two low-yielding, cool-climate vineyards near Sebastopol. Rich yet elegant in feel, already smooth and drinkable. Ripe cherry and fruit-skin flavors along with complex cola and floral components. Mouth-filling texture but not heavy-feeling or hot, despite the alcohol level. Long finish. Really impressive Pinot Noir from a winery best known for powerful Zinfandels. - HK 2008-06-07
