Kind of cool that they made 6,000 cases of the Napa/Sonoma PN but only 100 cases of the Napa Valley PN. Nice contrast!

Anyone know what area of Napa and Sonoma these vineyards are in? Wouldn't most parts of Napa be a bit warm for good pinot noir?

From the features tab:
Vineyard Details: The majority of grapes for this blend were sourced from Fotinos Vineyard in the Napa side of Carneros. The soils are Haire Clay Loam and the Pinot Noir from this vineyard tends to express sweet, bright flavor and fine tannins.

Do monkeys fly you ask? They must, as one flew over my house last Wednesday and dropped a package on the front lawn. Since it was only 6 degrees outside I ran out and grabbed it, in case it was something that should not freeze...lo and behold inside the small package was a bottle of 2011 Reata Napa Valley Pinot Noir. Stood it up in the cellar for a couple days, retrieving it Friday afternoon for a command performance Friday evening.

Popped and poured a small glass. Aroma of bright cherry and and a little earthiness hiding below. Similar flavor, red fruits are predominant. Color is a clear ruby,clear enough that you can see through it. I have a pic if I can figure out how to upload it. For those of you leg men(and women) out there, none really to speak of. The remainder went to a decanter for about 1/2 hour or so.

My wife and followed it for about two hours..because after two hours the decanter was empty. No day two report, sorry.

Impressions, me:

Red fruits stayed in the picture, cherry and raspberry. And it does have a certain mush-roomy earthiness to it.
A very round, what I call warm, mouthfeel. Low acid is my guess.

A touch of vanilla but not what I would describe as oaky.

Decent finish, lingers a bit.

Impressions, wife:

Similar to mine, she took a sip and gave it a yum. She then mentioned picking up spice and pepper components.

Overall very nice. Not a fruit bomb, not an austere burgundy.

It is soft and ready to rock. I would be buying this to drink, not to hang on to for too long. By no means do I think this is tired or anything, it's pretty fresh goods, just that's it's in a drinking phase now and don't see it improving.

Pegged it in the $20 range to be a value.

Wrote this before looking at the posting today, and I notice our impressions are similar to the winery description. I swear we didn't peek.

Cheers!

After a couple of days off of work, I just noticed I have a bottle of this. I will report back this evening.

Home at last..

PNP a nice strawberry nose with some mushroom funk and maybe a hint of oak, not distracting at all. First taste i'm getting strawberry and some cranberry, this is not tart but I think the combination of cranberry and acid give the wine a nice lift. There is some sweetness but good acidity.

As the wine opens I am getting some creamy cherry along with the other flavors. The finish is medium with a little bitter bite, again not distracting but adds something I like.

This bottle is nice and I would not hesitate to buy if I needed more wine. Thanks Woot!

I love that creamy texture in PN. I can't today, though, after buying 17 bottles of PN this month.
