Full-bodied California Pinot. Jammy strawberry and plum fruit in the nose along with lead pencil and lilacs. The spicy flavors have good grip in the attack and midrange. The finish is a bit shrill, though this is softened with airing or when the wine is consumed with food. At this point in its youth, this wine would benefit from being decanted before drinking. - WB Team 2002-05-03
