2006 Beaux Freres "Beaux Freres Vineyard" Pinot Noir 3L

2006 Beaux Freres "Beaux Freres Vineyard" Pinot Noir 3L

Wine Spectator 93pts: "Distinctly spicy, with cinnamon and white pepper overtones to the focused red berry and cherry fruit, persisting on the expressive finish and lingering beautifully. Needs time to settle in, but this has the goods to age. Best from 2010 through 2016."


IWC 91pts: "Medium red color. Smoky dark berries and cherry-cola on the nose, picking up exotic incense and bacon fat with air. Intense flavors of spiced cherry and blackberry flavors are enlivened by zesty minerality and framed by supple tannins. A plush, suave, alluring wine with excellent finishing sweetness and a late jolt of rooty sassafras. (JR)"

Producer Notes: "Deep ruby/purple-tinged to the rim, with a sweet, ripe nose of black raspberry, kirsch, with some underbrush and spice notes (any evidence of new oak casks is completely obscured by the wine’s fruit).  The wine cuts a broad savory path on the palate and has relatively elevated glycerin and sweet fruit which tends to obscure and hide the significant tannin.  This is a very full-bodied, powerful style but also has a seamless integration of fruit, acidity, wood, tannin and alcohol.  It’s a beauty and can be drunk young, although we envision this wine hitting its peak in 5-7 years and lasting for 15-20.  It is the sexiest, most hedonistic wine from this vineyard site to date.  For that reason, we think it is among the finest wines we have ever produced."
