I’ll stick to my thoughts from July 2007…this is the best Goldridge made in the last few years. This is just a really interesting wine that it hard to pin down. I get the kirsch liqueur, earth, spice, and orange rind that I consider to be typically RRV Pinot, but there are also those grilled herb, CdP-, Barolo-, and Burgundy-like components that don’t fit my preconceptions about RRV Pinot. I think this is a wine that some won’t like, but this was my last bottle, and it was singing when first opened and it’s still signing a day later. The style of this wine reminds me a little of the Walter Hansel wines from the 2003 and earlier era.
