Wow. What a beauty. Blockbuster nose of currant, plum, dried herbs, tree bark and loads of funk. Reminds me ever so slightly of the nose of the 2003 Jaboulet Aine Domaine the Thalabert Crozes Hermitage. Focused and sappy cherry fruit with cinnamon and ginger spices. Finishes extremely well. No hint of heat or candy, so this is right down my alley. My favorite Pinot from California from the 2004 vintage and reminiscent of the 2003 efforts from Walter Hansel in terms of aromatics. I love this wine.
