2006 August West "Graham Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1037009 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Light red color. Strikingly aromatic nose offers smoky cherry and dark berry scents complicated by musky herbs, baking spices and cola. Deeply concentrated, supple dark fruit flavors meld sweetness and vivacity seamlessly. Gains weight on the finish, which features cherry-cola and ripe blackberry qualities. A sexy, forward style that's delicious today. Inner quote mark (6/2008)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe plum and wild berry fruit has a spicy, floral edge. Full-bodied, balanced and delicate, ending with integrated tannins. The best of two bottles tasted. Inner quote mark (9/2009)

K&L Notes

This new vintage from boutique producer August West promises to be the winery's best yet. Made from fruit sourced from the Graham Family Vineyard in California's Russian River Valley, this 2006 Pinot Noir is a little mischievous. Its light, clear ruby color and pretty herbs and spice scented nose are deceptive; the palate is plush, with bright fruit flavors, balanced yet powerful. Get every bottle you can, drink one now, one next year and so on, to see how this beauty evolves.
