Sweet spices licorice flowers and raspberries follow adding lift and brightness on the finish. This needs time to absorb its 80% new oak barrels but it is a class act all the way. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2021. -Antonio Galloni

A beautiful Pinot Noir dry rich and voluptuous. It's delicious with a round mellow feeling but good tannins give it a firm edge. The ripe flavors suggest cherries Dr. Pepper cola and sandalwood. - S.H.

Ruby-red. Pungent oak-spiced aromas of raspberry and blackberry show a flamboyant personality and pick up notes of vanilla and mocha with air.

Pungent oak-spiced aromas of raspberry and blackberry show a flamboyant personality and pick up notes of vanilla and mocha with air. Open-knit and supple in texture offering sweet red and dark berry flavors and a good dose of vanillin oak. The lumber recedes a bit on the finish which showcases the vaguely jammy berry qualities. I suspect that a little bottle age will tame the oak here. 90+
