 Tasted by drcbarroso on 11/26/2007 & rated 93 points: Drinking fantastic right now. Light ruby in color with a little bricking and slightly cloudy. Incredibly well balanced wine, showing a bit of pinot funk, slight cranberry, red cherry, and allspice. Fantastic finish on this. This probably won't be getting any better. (1081 views)
 Tasted by jebbeling on 5/4/2006 & rated 88 points: Not bad...But wasn't spectacular. Lacked a little on the finish...Probably just a tough vintage year. (1793 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

California

California Wines (Wine Institute of California)

California is one of the most diverse wine regions in the world, with almost 100 grape varieties grown in over 100 viticultural areas, including dozens of ­different microclimates and soil types, as well as a very individualistic set of ­winemakers, many with international experience, which adds to and deepens that diversity.

Carneros

Straddles the southern ends of Napa & Sonoma Counties.
