"On par with the beautiful '05s, Gainey's 2006 Pinot Noir shows the crisp structure and delicious flavors that Santa Rita Hills so often brings to Pinot Noir. it's dynamic in cherry, currant, root beer, vanilla and spice flavors, wrapped into a silky mouthfeel." - 90, Wine Enthusiast
"Our 2006 Pinot Noir is a worthy successor to the much-praised 2005, which garnered a bevy of sobriquets from leading wine critics. Like 2005, 2006 was a cool growing season in the Santa Rita Hills, with an extended harvest period that allowed our Pinot Noir grapes to attain an ideal balance of sugar and acidity. Perhaps even more focused and concentrated than its predecessor, the 2006 is classically styled, with fresh, pure fruit, bright acidity and succulent, perfectly balanced flavors of red raspberries and Bing cherries accented by alluring Asian spice tones. Beautifully structured, with firm, supple tannins, its delicious red fruit and savory spice flavors are expertly framed by subtle French oak tones." - Winemaker Notes
