Review

The darkest and most powerful of these Pinots, the 2011 Pinot Noir Blue Slide Ridge is endowed with serious structure and pure, unbridled power. Black cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, orange peel and spices all take shape in the glass. Readers will have to give the 2011 at least another year or two in bottle for the tannins to soften.
