2006 Drew Weir Vineyard Yorkville Highlands Pinot Noir

13.9% alc., 187 cases, $50 (sold out, try www.wadeswines.com). Weir Vineyard is 15 acres which includes rare DRC and Rochioli selections. · Very enviable aromas of mineral-inflected black cherry fruit, strawberry and cookie dough. Highly likeable raspberry and strawberry fruit flavors with a glamorous fruity aftertaste accentuated with spice and a little white pepper. The fruity finish sneaks up and expands in the mouth over a minute - very sexy. The demure presentation of fruit is very attractive. I like this wine a lot and it is admirable for its perfect balance and purity. The best from this appellation I have ever sampled. Hock your kids for this one. Reviewed March 17, 2008
