Tasting Notes:
rated: December 1, 2006 , Robert Parker
91 points "A blockbuster Pinot, the 2005 Pinot Noir The North Slope boasts deep, sweet, jammy black cherry notes interwoven with crushed rocks, flowers, and underbrush (or is it peat moss?). Medium to full-bodied, with excellent acidity, elegance, and purity as well as a savory mouthfeel, this terrific effort will provide immense pleasure between 2008-2015. Kudos to Stephen Hansel for keeping prices so realistic." Best 2008-2015

90 points "Medium red. At once ripe and precise on the nose, with raspberry and cherry fruit aromas complicated by pungent licorice, Asian spices and graphite. A velvety midweight with deep, sweet cherry and dark berry flavors framed by fine-grained tannins. Finishes sappy and sweet, with a distinct cherry tone."
