89 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2005

Medium color and body with tannins that obscure the pleasant fruit. The next day the tannins still dominated, suggesting to me that this wine will not benefit that much from age because of the level of fruit extract.

Pinot Noir

Adored by critics, prized by collectors, Pinot Noir is one of most tantalizing yet temperamental varietals in the world. For many wine enthusiasts, this is part of the appeal of Pinot -- it doesn't reveal its charms easily. Pinot Noir's virtue also stems from the unique characteristics of the grape.
