2005 Bink Wines Weir Vineyard Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir

$40. The 7-acre Weir Vineyard is farmed meticulously by Bill and Susan Weir. Planted about 15 years ago at 850-1000 feet in a unique cool microclimate, the vineyard is divided into older plantings (DRC suitcase clone and Wadenswil 2A) and newer plantings (Pommard Rochioli Riverblock). Williams Selyem has bottled a superb vineyard designate Pinot Noir from this vineyard for several years and Drew Wines bottles a terrific example. · A Pinot Noir with a Burgundian soul with plenty of earthy and mineral underpinning. The dark red fruits are juicy and pure and the wine is beautifully balanced and composed. Reviewed July 7, 2008
