    Bulldog, Pinot NoirCost: UnavailableDrink Date: 2004 - 2009

    The 2002 Pinot Noir Bulldog Reserve is one of the most stunning Pinots I have tasted over the last year. Its deep ruby/purple hue is accompanied by a glorious perfume of black fruits, white flowers, forest floor, and truffles. Cote de Nuits-like, this complex, full-bodied Pinot Noir inundates the palate with forest floor notes intermixed with plums, cherries, black currants, and subtle toast characteristics. Good acidity provides uplift and focus in this outstanding effort. Enjoy it over the next 4-5 years.

    Big Paw, ChardonnayCost: UnavailableDrink Date: 2004 - 2010

    The light green/gold-colored 2002 Chardonnay Big Paw offers a subdued nose of restrained tropical fruits intermixed with liquid minerals. Impressive flavors build incrementally, followed by excellent acidity, a judicious touch of new wood, and a 30+ second finish. This is a brilliant Chardonnay that plays it close to the vest. It reminded me of a top premier cru from Chassagne-Montrachet. Drink it over the next 5-6 years.
