Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 92 points

Medium red. Spicy, tangy aromas of sweet cherry, red berries and smoked meat; this could be mistaken for a Gevrey Chambertin Clos St. Jacques in a blind tasting. Terrific intensity of cherry and red berry flavor with solid, integrated acids. Quite youthful and fresh for a pinot noir from this vintage. Finishes firm and very long; in fact, this has one of the strongest, most persistent finishes of any recent pinot release from this winery.

Review Date: December 1998

Wine Spectator: 90 points

Ripe and rich, with creamy oak and lots of plum, blackberry and cherry character, turning tannic and sophisticated.
