| ||Tasted by wino_tim on 7/9/2010 & rated 87 points: Burgundian in style, and a bit tightly wound, with a cedary edge to its red cherry, French oak, and wild raspberry notes. Slightly lower acidity than expected for the estate, with a juicy palate full of cranberry and underipe cherry flavors. Tough wine to call. (1512 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.
