2006 Styring Vineyards Premier Estate Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., 75 cases, $45. The inaugural Estate Pinot Noir is sourced from the first 5 acres planted on the Styring Ribbon Ridge estate in 2003. · The nose is shy and brooding, reluctantly offering ripe dark fruits, forest floor and smoky aromas. Very tasty core of blackberries and black raspberries with an appealing nuttiness. Smooth and seamless with plenty of richness to satisfy. The tannins are barely perceptible and the finish has admirable persistence. Still drank beautifully two and three days later from a previously opened and re-corked bottle indicating this wine will improve over time and age extremely well. Reviewed August 17, 2009
