VINOUS (STEPHEN TANZER)
Very good red color. Reticent but pure nose offers up minerals, smoke and forest floor scents. Large-scaled and wonderfully sweet yet almost magically light on its feet. In fact, this wine is rather tight and racy now, with superb cut. Explosive flavors emerged with some swirling: raspberry, minerals, mocha, smoke, spices and earth. This has the combination of nervosite and complex soil tones that would kick most Burgundies off the table. Superb mounting finish. Likely to merit an even higher score with a couple more years in the bottle.

JAMES LAUBE
A sensational Pinot that caresses the palate. Ultrarich and deeply flavored, with an easygoing and delicious range of ripe, spicy blackberry, black cherry, fresh earth and herbal spice and nutmeg flavors. Smooth, this delicate beauty dances on the palate, ending with a fragrant dried cherry and wilted rose petal scent. Drink now through 2012. 400 cases made.
