New release of John's Pinot noir.

previous vintage notes: On the redder side of the 2008's, John Albin's Laurel Vineyard Pinot offers elegant, slightly dusty cherries and raspberries, with a fantastic sweetness/brightness equilibrium. It has a softer, more supple texture than many of its peers. Tasting next to a pair of Burgundies (from Mercurey), this made perfect sense. - Marcus

The winery did not make a 2007 vintage.

2006 Vintage Tasting Notes

This wine is luscious. It's simultaneously refreshing and rich. Cinnamon-stick, sweet blackbery and juicy cherry leads into a creamy textured beauty, with fresh raspberry and earth on the velvety finish.

Scents of black cherry, black berry, milk chocolate, and black raspberry are reiterated in the flavors. One taster in our panel says: "chocolate!" and it's there, under the rich and vibrant berry fruit. There's a hint of fresh nutmeg in the finish. Quite lively and fresh tasting, this wine has not peaked, and offers a very enjoyable experience now, and for several more years. - Jean

From the winery: "This wine is elegant with notes of dark cherry and violets in the aroma. Blue fruit and a pleasing earthiness balance the flavors of chocolate, barrel toast and soft tannins. A delightful taste lingers on the palate. Crafted from Pommard clone from the oldest vineyard block planted in 1981, the fruit was gently handled and cold soaked for three days followed by fermentation using Assmanhausen yeast.
