“Scents of earth give way to a lean set of palate flavors, the texture surprisingly nimble and bright. This wine’s tannins are forceful at the moment, needing a bit of time in the cellar to integrate with the fruit.” – Patrick J. Comiskey

“Broad at the outset, with juniper and bay leaf scents, this wine is tightly packed with black cherry flavor. It fills the palate with succulent fruit while those herbal accents keep the wine savory, the firm fruit-skin tannins in the finish suggesting a pairing with boar sugo.” – Patrick J. Comiskey

2007 VINTAGE

 

WillaKenzie Estate Pinot Noir Estate Cuvée 2007 Review from the WALL STREET JOURNAL
Nov. 04, 2009
“Light but complete. Good Pinot flavors in a very drinkable package. Bright fruit and light enough to complement everything on the table without adding yet another big taste. This really tastes like the fruit of the harvest—something that grew in the earth, under the sun—and therefore is quite appropriate to a Thanksgiving meal.” –DOROTHY J. GAITER AND JOHN BRECHER

“Creamy texture, restrained flavors of cherries and raspberries.” -Eric Asimov
The 2007 growing year was cool and rainy. Those producers who met the challenge were largely able to make balanced wines with moderate levels of alcohol and a lot of freshness, which comes from good acidity.
