    raspberry fruit and a modest hand at some french oak. lightly expressing dark earth. tangy spice. is there RS in here??? nice and easy. All sourced fruit??? Ben calls Monterey as usually with a tomato component, but not here.

    ferments on the stems. nose of the sous-bois. toasted brown rice. livelier acid than the Mount Eden 06 Estate. green notes on the palate. not really so fruit driven. Red raspberry fruit comes off on the finish.

  • 2007 Paraiso Vineyards Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands

    USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands

    fog influence for sure. 1st to plant in the highlands.
    spice/wood notes is really clonal selection. not so aromatic, the nose is being difficult. tight, not so tight, but not giving up much more than structure. roast to the finish.

  • 2005 Morgan Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard

    USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands

    sous bois and that light element of deep sweetness. light body. almost a blackberry fruit profile. brown leaf on the nose. full level of fruit to the morgan. great in the mouth.
