2000 Pinot Noir, Mendocino Ridge

"Wine of the Month-Best Red - This is one of the most exciting, fascinating Pinot Noirs tasted in a long, long time. It brings together tones of red plum, red currant, and black cherry fruit which is combined with an underlying leather, gamey, truffle theme. Add a little spice -- cinnamon and jasmine -- to the silky texture, and you are looking at superb Pinot Noir." --Decanter Magazine
