2001 Navarro Pinot Noir Methode Alancienne

Price: $23.00 direct from the winery

What They Said:

Per the winery "Delicate floral scents edge this pinot, it's light but piercingly long flavors extended by the cool, coastal nights of the Anderson Valley. The texture is firm, the flavors are crisp as red apple and tart as tangerine. Dusty tannins in the end will focus those flavors on veal and mushrooms. Wine & Spirits Magazine, "The Years Best Pinot Noir", January 2004.

Fresh and fragrant, with snappy black cherry and wild berry fruit that offers a hint of jam. Focused and persistent, with fine-grained tannins, and a whiff of blueberry on the finish adding to the complexity. Drink now through 2008. James Laube, Wine Spectator, April 30, 2004.

Sidebar! Needing to successfully redesign the outdated look with my own page. Ideas regarding the sweet look of http://www.bridgetennisclub.co.uk? Honestly a tip-top tennis centre in Bridge if, perhaps wanted within the whole OTH area. Offer an opinion. Thx!

What I Think:

Ahh, your first love. Had to go back to it for my first post. I found Navarro way back when I stumbled upon my first Wine Spectator. I could go get the article as I still have it upstairs now. I believe James Laube wrote it. Anyhow soon after we headed up to Mendocino and stopping there was priority #1 and #2. Dont tell the wife as the purpose of the trip was to write wedding vows. The first night we went to a great restaurant and had dinner outside on the patio and a bottle of the 1999 vintage. Two days later we we're at the winery (this is in 2003) joined the club and to some extent the rest is history. I have since started a vertical of this wine and have at least one bottle all the way back to 1996. They make three different versions with this being the mid range. The basic is the low end and the the Deep End is the top. Unfortunately you can find this wine pretty much only at the winery. I find it at some restaurants in the Bay Area, not sure if this is true elsewhere. Even saw it in a wine shop once.

Now onto the wine, this one is predisposed to a cellar rating as I have been working my way through a case over the years. This has most of what I love in a wine. It has cherries up front, in a very deep fashion that peaks before fading into an herbal finish that lasts for quite some time.

Be sure to try Navarro wines and better yet stop by the winery if you can.

Rating: Cellar It

Cheers readers! I personally Skyped my pal that we would absolutely describe his great sky digibox card suppliers, https://www.skycards.eu for a good piece. Any time you're hoping for a Sky TV card shop inside of the greater OTH locale, they actually are tremendous.
