Medium-deep ruby color; complex black cherry clove and forest floor aromas; rich ripe black cherry fruit flavors with clove and forest floor notes; sweet oak; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish... Medium-deep ruby color; complex black cherry clove and forest floor aromas; rich ripe black cherry fruit flavors with clove and forest floor notes; sweet oak; silky texture; good structure and balance; long finish. Amazing depth and complex flavors make this a natural for any deep rich braise.

It's rich and ripe yet the firm tannins and crisp acidity argue for time. Shows a complex heart of black cherries red currants cola leather and smoky sandalwood that is frankly delicious. But the finish turns hard. Give it until 2011 to begin to show its stuff. Cellar Selection.

This small producer has turned out a gorgeous 2007 Pinot Noir Pratt Vineyard, made primarily from Dijon clones. It possesses a medium dark ruby color in addition to a big, spicy nose filled with black cherry, damp earth, and forest floor characteristics, a silky texture, and complex, supple tannins. It is already delicious, and should provide plenty of pleasure over the next 3-4 years. - Robert Parker

Both a bit riper and slightly more sturdy than its cellarmates, the Pratt Vineyard bottling is moderately full-bodied working that is, by a small margin, the toughest of MacPhail's many Pinots. That said, it is also a wine of considerable substance and depth, and, if beauty eludes it just now, it has the stuffing to grow for many years. Set it aside for another half-decade and tag it for drinking with a rack of lamb.

The success of 2007 California Pinots continues with the 2007 Macphail Pinot Noir Pratt Vineyard. Aromas burst from the glass and make you stand up and take notice- a beautiful mix of dark berry and black cherry fruit... The success of 2007 California Pinots continues with the 2007 Macphail Pinot Noir Pratt Vineyard. Aromas burst from the glass and make you stand up and take notice- a beautiful mix of dark berry and black cherry fruit crushed rocks and a touch of cola. On the palate the wine is full-bodied and far from timid but exceptionally well balanced and complex. Darker and more earthy than many of its Central Coast counterparts the Pratt boasts lovely acidity and soft sweet tannins that linger on the long inviting finish. Drink now and over the next 5-7 years.
