2005 Failla "Occidental Ridge Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1397056 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Revealing the densest color, the 2005 Pinot Noir Occidental Ridge was fashioned from French Dijon clones 667, 777, and 115. Its deep ruby/purple color is accompanied by a big, sweet bouquet of black raspberries, cherries, cola, and blackberries. Opulent, full-bodied, rich, and impressively endowed, it will benefit from a year or two of bottle age, and should keep for a decade. (RP) 92+ Inner quote mark (12/2006)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (from vines planted in 1998) Good bright ruby-red; the deepest color of these '05 pinots. Very primary aromas of wild black fruits, licorice and underbrush; smells like a thoroughly ripe wine from a cool site. Rich, broad, tactile and dry, with a dusty minerality to the flavors of sappy red cherry and flowers. Still a bit clenched and grapey: will this blossom in the bottle? Finishes with a hint of black pepper. Shows very good depth for young vines. (ST) 90+? Inner quote mark (5/2007)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Firm, ripe and snappy, with wild, racy raspberry, wild berry and cranberry notes that are tight, focused, crisp and refreshing, enlivened by zippy acidity and fine-grained tannins. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2007)
