1995 Ponzi Willamette Pinot Noir Reserve, 13% alc.: Our friend Michael Rowley pulled this rusty ruby garnet gem from his cellar, not knowing what to expect, and it impressed us all with an attractive mature character, showing mushroom, a little earth and smoky plum and black cherry flavors and aromas; it develops a nice note of sea air on the nose as it opens. Medium to medium full bodied, with mostly resolved tannins and a lovely sense of balance. This may still get better with further cellaring, but it’s already quite delightful.
