2000 Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, Olivet Lane Vineyard (110 cases produced)
This Olivet Lane bottling is sweet cherry and soft vanilla from the first whiff. In the mouth are bright cherry flavors, cocoa, spices, with a textured mouth feel. There is the presence of soft oak backing this rich wine. The coating left in the mouth delivers a long, full finish.
2000 Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley ( 350 cases produced )
The Russian River Valley bottling has aromas of strawberry in the foreground with dark tea and cola in the background. On the palate exists the confirmation of the sweet strawberry/cherry fruits, hints of cinnamon, vanilla, with a supple and approachable structure. This wine has a real viscosity in the mouth that lengthens the concentration of the fruit.
