2003 Burrell School Estate Reserve Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir

14.6% alc., 325 cases. The first estate bottling. Pommard and Dijon clones, aged in 70% new French oak. · The nose features bright red scents of red cherries, cranberry, and rhubarb. Sweet tart black cherry and berry flavors are encased in fine French oak throughout. Better integration of oak here than in the above wine. Earthy and woodsy with a mildly dry finish that features refreshing acidity. Very primal. Reviewed March 17, 2008
