This Pinot Noir is a wealth of aromas such as fresh cranberries, maraschino cherries, and orange zest. The palate is round and juicy with lively acidity, and a touch of sweet, toasty oak on the finish.

Opened up nicely after 45 minutes. Still quite drinkable from the git-go.
The legs are medium. There is no sediment in the bottle.

Another great Terry Theise wine. Rich clear Ruby color. Initial rich spicy nose becomes a bit subdued after about 15 min. Classic red fruit and oak spice on the palate. Rich full mouth-feel with very well balanced fruit and acidity. A very good PN, an exceptional German PN.

Outstanding! A merlot blend of the highest quality. Lovely acidity. The body is quite full. Wonderful smooth texture. Dynamite prolonged finish. Great QPR! Pure Perfection for rib eye and your heavy pastas.

Cellaring this Chianti paid off. Still plenty of fruit. Found the community "drink by 2008" of interest. The added smoothness was well worth the wait. Last of three bottles. Darn.

Moderate to a large amount of sediment in the bottle.Stand the bottle for a couple of days prior to opening. Cellaring these 2003s made for an enjoyable mouth stimulating wine to drink. Has raisin overtones. Ready to drink!

Cabernet, Merlot, Syrah, and Cabernet Franc. Ready to drink. QPR beyond anything in my cellar. Multiple tastings with same result.
The legs are medium. There is light sediment in the bottle. It smells like blackberry. The wine has smooth texture. The wine finishes medium. The wine has low acidity.

Smooth. Perfect compliment to highly spicy pork porcheta. Quiet notes of tobacco and leather. The body is Medium/Full. The wine finishes somewhat "Short."

Definite vanilla cola; my wife keeps getting "pepper" even over into the second night. Strong fruit, full powered finish. Server said her favorite. I can see why. Half-priced wine night at Mill Valley!

Eight months aging did nothing to enhance this "not a wow" for the best palate in my home, my wife who is 62 today! Similar findings. Perhaps I should stay away from Australian Shiraz-based blends.

Tweeted with hash tag #7wordwinereview "My wife Kita says NOT a WOW" So those are my seven tweeted words. I would add "dark berry with short finish and with just the right amount alcohol." The 2009 is better. Check out #7wordwinereview

Moving some bottles around in my wine cellar precipitated an "early" taste of this super savory over-the-top red. I wish I had waited a bit. A new try today.

The tannins are hanging in there. Am going to give it a year or more at least. Nine years would seem to be long enough.

After having had this wine recommended by a server in Seattle @ $48, we could not wait to get back home to find Surdyk's 20:20 sale on ($17.59 + tax). Now we have to see if the ambience of the bistro affected our taste buds. I doubt it and now have a half-dozen bottles to back up that hunch. My dearest and her great palette was insistent on me buying this one. Wonderful full finish. Not too light. We are to taste test tonight with Peter and Janet from Big Sky.

Multiple tastes of leather, chocolate, blackberry. A full bodied cab. Just plain fun!

When my female partner wants to talk about a wine you know it has to be special and this is a woman who really appreciates Rieslings. Compared nicely with her love of German Rieslings vis a vis crispness and fruit. Adequate finish. I agree...of course. Plus, drinking it keeps the $ in the good old USA. Chateau Ste. Miichelle is very hard to beat in general. Brava.

Well worth cellaring, this Pinot had held its fruit and provided an astonishing finish. A treat all around.
