The 2006 Pinot Noir Botella reveals a slightly darker medium ruby color, and a fruit-dominated bouquet of red currants, plums, black cherries, and Allspice. Broader, richer, and more savory with additional texture and depth. (RP)  (12/2008)

ark red. Full-blown cherry and dark berry aromas, with oak spice and incense adding complexity. Fleshy and open-knit, with very good depth to the creamy blackcurrant and black raspberry jam flavors. Not a subtle wine by any means, but there's a lively mineral undertone that lends lift and clarity. Finishes with excellent sappy persistence, a pleasantly bitter cherry pit bite and lingering oak spice. This is delicious right now. (JR)  (11/2008)
