2005 Gloria Ferrer Gravel Knob Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 210 cases. · Dreamy perfume of crushed black cherries, flowers, oak and hay. Substantial raspberry attack on the palate. Softly textured throughout with powdery tannins and a clean and tangy finish. A pleasure to drink and definitely preferable to the 2004 bottling from this vineyard.

2004 Gloria Ferrer Gravel Knob Vineyard Carneros Pinot Noir

13.5% alc., 347 cases, $40. Sourced from a rocky part of Home Ranch with well-drained soils. Comar 538 and clone 32. · Requires some time in the glass to open revealing wild berry, black cherry, oak and hay scents. Dusty dark fruits, earth, tobacco and herbs lend interest. Very soft in the mouth. A bit sour on the finish. I could not warm up to this one. Reviewed July 19, 2008 WINERY » ARTICLE »
