2005 Leigh Cellars Silacci Vineyard Monterey County Pinot Noir

14.5% alc., $27. The label says “Produced and bottled by Arcadian,” but this is the private label of Gerry Frayer who made this wine under the tutelage of Arcadian’s Joe Davis. I believe this is Gerry’s first Pinot Noir. This is a very nicely weighted Pinot Noir whose light garnet color indicates that elegance is forthcoming. · It possesses a spice cabinet nose with a subtle hint of oak and alcohol. Juicy spiced peach and cherry flavors are followed by a citrus kick on the back end. A pretty wine that is easily approachable. Reviewed November 20, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »

2003 Miura Silacci Vineyard Monterey County Pinot Noir

$54. Vinified by Byron Kosuge (formerly Saintsbury, now B. Kosuge Wines, Mirua, and Kinston Family in Chile). · The nose opens with air time to appealing berry, spice and oak aromas. Flavors of dark Pinot fruits have a rustic and earthy edge. A soft, elegant style with gossamer tannins. The nose trumps the flavors at this stage. Reviewed August 24, 2007 WINERY » ARTICLE »
