2005 Harmonique Elegancé Anderson Valley Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., 215 cases, $49.50. Inaugural vintage for this bottling. Harvested at 24.3º Brix. Sourced in small part from the Day Ranch Vineyard but primarily the Conzelman (formerly Rose Family) Vineyard. The Old Block (24 years old) of the Conzelman Vineyard consists of 4 acres of cordon pruned Martini clone. Yields were less than 2 tons per acre. · Darkest in color of the three 2005 Pinot Noirs. Hi-tone aromas of plums, raisins, sage and a hint of oak. Rich and ripe flavored dark fruits with notes of raisin, anise and Snicker’s bar, supple tannins, a silky and smooth texture, and a bright finish flush with tangerine peel. The oak is nicely integrated and the brisk acidity makes you reach for another sip. Reviewed June 5, 2009
