- 2001 Loring Wine Company Pinot Noir Garys' Vineyard - Santa Lucia Highlands, Central Coast, California, USA (10/31/2004)
Mmm, this is some lush, silky juice. Piercing cherry is the dominant note with hints of pine, caramel, briar, earth and licorice beneath the sweet, pure fruit. The texture is unreal, pure silk. Mmm, the palate is sappy and sweet with loads of crushed raspberry, nice acid and minerality. This has shed a lot of weight in the past 18 months, really showing a much more classy elegant side than on release. This is really nice juice on its own and with dinner. It doesn't feature the weight, intensity or complexity of the 2002 Garys', but it is awfully alluring. (90 pts.)
