RATINGS

90-93Stephen Tanzer

Noble, highly nuanced aromas of boysenberry, violet, mocha and Oriental spices. Gently styled yet penetrating in the mouth, with good sappy cut for the vintage. Lovely texture, but the flavors are currently rather unevolved. Fresh, integrated acids keep this rich wine from being thick. Boasts superb length and firm underlying structure. But this is harmonious from the outset.

TYPE

Red Wine, Pinot Noir, Grand Cru

This red wine is relatively light and can pair with a wide variety of foods. The grape prefers cooler climates and the wine is most often associated with Burgundy, Champagne and the U.S. west coast. Regional differences make it nearly as fickle as it is flexible.
