2005 Chasseur "Sexton" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1153152 95 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark Serving as something of a bridge between Chasseur's elegant Sylvia's and opulent Freestone Station bottlings, this lovely wine exhibits the best of both with its complex expressions of cherries and violets and perfectly fit oak. It is full and fleshy in feel with a terrific sense of concentration and just the right touch of tannin for structural grip, and, like both of its show-stopping partners, it is absolutely delicious right now yet will develop in bottle for a good many years. *Three Stars* Inner quote mark (10/2007)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Bill Hunter also demonstrates a sure hand with Pinot Noir. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep red. Musky, ripe aromas of red and dark berries are distinctly wild, with subtle anise and dried flowers adding complexity. Chewy raspberry and blackcurrant flavors offer very good depth and richness, with supple tannins contributing shape. A luscious, rich style of pinot, but it doesn't lack for energy or clarity. In fact, I'd hold it for a few more years. (ST) 90+ Inner quote mark (6/2008)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Offers an initial burst of ripe wild berry and raspberry fruit before turning more subtle and elegant, with a hint of nutmeg and cedar. Complex, with fine-grained tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2007)
