Positively brimming with fruity aromatics and flavors, we find this wine (made from grapes from our certified organic estate vineyards) dominated by a mix of fresh crushed berries and dark cherries, shot through with a floral-spice element and a beet-root-meets-cola essence. The wine showcases the dark rich side of Pinot Noir and already has a supple smooth texture with clean acidity. We'd suggest roasts and grilled meats as accompaniments; barbeque shrimp with grits; pan-roasted salmon filets, etc!

The Pinot Noirs are made in the red currant / pomegranate style of this varietal. The leanest, most austere of these Pinots is the 2007 Pinot Noir, which possesses a certain tartness as well as attractive cherry and currant fruit. This straightforward effort is best consumed over the next several years.

This is tight, offering loamy earth, dried currant and berry flavors, with touches of cedar and sage. Full-bodied, with firm tannins. Drink now through 2012.

Very dry, high in acidity, and not particularly charming now in its youth, although there is a certain nobility. Has a tough, hard mouthfeel, with suggestions of ripe red cherries. An ager? Hard to tell. Give it until 2011, then try again.
