"Nose of blueberry, black cherry, raspberry and pine; cranberry, dried cherry, citrus, vanilla and toast flavors; round on palate, silky tannins, nice balance." Panel Pick [2003 Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir]
~ San Francisco Chronicle

"If quiet waters run deep, then quiet berry flavors and aromas run exceptionally deep in this syrah. Balanced with just enough oak and a wonderfully austere balance on the palate, this is my kind of wine! A soft lingering finish is the perfect ending. What a lovely food wine. One that will age more like a French wine as it develops the complexity of age." [2003 Cherry Ridge Vineyard Syrah]
