Tremendous richness depth and concentration with a gush of blueberry wild berry and blackberry fruit that offers intensity lively acidity and enough tannins to merit short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2011. 2400...

Good medium red. Superripe aromas of candied raspberry plum spices and flowers. Fat spicy and sweet with a deep core of rich red fruits. Finishes with sweet tannins and excellent length.

The 2004 Pinot Noir Southing which takes its name from a south-facing hillside vineyard is a packed and stacked effort with a dense ruby/purple color as well as a restrained but promising nose of black currants cherries... The 2004 Pinot Noir Southing which takes its name from a south-facing hillside vineyard is a packed and stacked effort with a dense ruby/purple color as well as a restrained but promising nose of black currants cherries and raspberries with forest floor/earthy undertones. This is a full-bodied powerful Pinot revealing striking elegance purity and seamlessness. Although young and unevolved it is well-balanced and should drink well for 7-10 years.

Like both its stable mates this is quite stylish with moderate oak framing very ripe and spicy dark berry fruit notes with ample violet nuances that leads to rich and somewhat fresher middle weight flavors that are finer... Like both its stable mates this is quite stylish with moderate oak framing very ripe and spicy dark berry fruit notes with ample violet nuances that leads to rich and somewhat fresher middle weight flavors that are finer and underpinned by finer and more sophisticated tannins as well though they sacrifice the muscle and power of the Botella in the bargain. This coats the mouth with ample dry extract and the finishing balance is the best of the three and the only nit here is a touch of warmth. Otherwise this is stylish balanced complex and the class of the cellar.
