The 2004 Pinot Noir Ten (from ten separate clones) possesses a deep ruby/purple-tinged color sweet cranberry raspberry and cherry fruit and a hint of toasty oak in the background. The most closed as well as the biggest and richest of this trio it will benefit from another 12 months of cellaring and should drink well for a decade or more. An impressive example of Pinot Noir it offers further evidence of the Santa Rita Hills' potential.Tel. (805) 737-1600

Liqueur-like aromas of raspberry blackberry dark cherry and cola with a slight roasted nuance. Supersweet supple and very ripe with layered flavors of strawberry raspberry creme de cassis and candied licorice complicated by a note of chocolate liqueur. This very ripe and rich pinot reminded me of a 2003 Burgundy. Very long on the aftertaste with lush tannins. This is 14.9% alcohol vs. 14.7% for the Southing and Botella bottlings. An excellent set of pinots from this producer.
