2006 Raptor Ridge Pinot Noir Reserve
"Deep red. Powerful blackberry, cassis and licorice aromas, along with cocoa powder and Indian spices. Pliant dark berry flavors offer deep, liqueur-like dark berry and kirsch flavors, with gentle mineral lift on the close. Rich, sweet and impressively broad on the finish, which leaves behind a strong dark fruit compote quality. This is surprisingly lithe for a wine with such weight."
