2006 Gypsy Canyon Winery Santa Rita Creek Vineyard Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Barrel Sample

$75. · A shy nose leads to a nicely crafted and elegant Pinot Noir. The dusty red cherry fruit is enrobed in tasty baking spices. The wine delivers plenty of flavor but is light on its feet. An engaging Pinot Noir the has admirable finesse, refined acidity and powdery tannins. This one will only get more expressive with time in the bottle. Reviewed July 23, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2005 Gypsy Canyon Winery Lot 2 Santa Rita Creek Vineyard Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir

14.0% alc., < 18 cases, $75. Aged 15 months in 50% new French oak. Hand bottled in January, 2007. · This is a very elegant, smooth and polished Pinot Noir. The color is more mahogany than violet. The nose is a bit rustic with brown sugar-coated cherries and a hint of port. The cherry fruit is complemented by gregarious spice, cinnamon and a lively finish which displays gossamer tannins. Very appealing. Delicious the next day from an uncorked bottle. Reviewed May 7, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »
