2005 Jack Creek Cellars Estate York Mountain Pinot Noir

$32. · Appealing aromatics of dark fruits, anise and clove. There is a substantial dark fruit core which is still overpowered by oak at this time. Reviewed July 16, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2005 Jack Creek Cellars Reserve York Mountain Pinot Noir

Even more structure and power here, syrah-like. Despite the prodigious fruit, the texture is silky and comforting. Not for the faint of heart. Reviewed July 16, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2004 Jack Creek Cellars Kruse Vineyard York Mountain Templeton Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $32. · A medium-bodied wine with a warm robe of dark violet. The nose is substantial with notes of dark cherries and licorice. With air time the wine becomes really plush on the palate - as smooth as a baby’s bottom. The finish lingers with black raspberry, oak and fine dusty tannins. A wine that really reflects the terroir of this vineyard. Reviewed November 26, 2006 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2004 Jack Creek Cellars Kruse Vineyard York Mountain Templeton Reserve Pinot Noir

14.7% alc., $42. · Everything is ramped up here. The color is dark. The nose is a bit closed at this point with buttery toast and earth notes and a hint of alcohol. This is a rich, full-bodied wine with mountainous fruit, especially plum flavors. There is a solid backbone of oak and tannins that works in harmony with the fruit. The finish is pure and clean. A Big Gulp for lovers of hardy Cali Pinot Noir. Reviewed November 26, 2006 WINERY » ARTICLE »
