Named for the peregrines in the region, this wine does a great job of expressing the character of the appellation through fruit sourced from the Sanford and Benedict Vineyard and Rancho Encantada two terrific sites for Pinot Noir. Bright acidity lifts the rich fruit character of clones 667 and 777 from S&B, while the earthiness of the Pommard clone from Encantada brings further texture and depth.
Medium-deep ruby color; rich, smoky, meaty dark cherry aromas; ripe, deep, rich dark cherry and plum flavors, smoky, meaty notes; sweet oak; good structure and balance; long finish. Rich and smoky Pinot with a lot of depthI have a feeling we're just scratching the surface of what's inside this wine. Be patient. Score: 93
The 06 Pinot Noir can be paired with Thanksgiving turkey. Lie this bottle down till next Thanksgiving and you'll be glad you did.

Our mission is to provide unbiased opinions of the wine being offered. These notes come from up to 10 guests who tasted this wine in a blind tasting format (wine is concealed so their identity is unknown). Why this format? Tasting blind completely throws out any hype associated with a certain winery, style, price point, etc; it forces the taster to accept what is in the glass without any predetermined notions. Our guests utilize Robert Parker's Glossary of Wine Terms for their comments for consistency purposes. In addition, we utilize the wine aroma wheel to enhance one’s ability to describe the complexity of wine flavor. Notes are posted on this wine during the tasting to ensure they accurately reflect the impressions.
