The debut release of a new bottling the dark ruby-hued 2007 Pinot Noir de Villiers is from a 13.1-acre vineyard planted in 1997 on pure limestone soils. Cropped at an unbelievably low .78 tons of fruit per acre the wine spent 16 months in Francois Freres oak barrels (30% new) and was bottled without filtration. It offers notes of rhubarb sassafras sweet cherries strawberries and herbs in a full-bodied dense complex juicy format. With silky tannins decent acidity and a long finish it should drink well for a decade or more.

Aromas of dried herbs underbrush and pepper fill the nose tapering into high-toned cranberry notes. This medium bodied pinot is fresh and bright with wild strawberry blackberry and a touch of spicy toast in the lengthy finish. With its softened tannins it is ready to drink now or hold for another 3+ years.
