Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
This is Saint Clair's top Pinot Noir. The 2007 vintage was grown mostly in the company's vineyards in the Omaka Valley, and matured for 10 months in French oak barriques (68 per cent new). Deep ruby, it is fresh, vibrant, flowing and supple, with sweet-fruit characters, cherry, plum and olive flavours, gentle tannins and good complexity. There is no 2008.

Michael Cooper (2002 Vintage) says
The deeply coloured 2001 vintage was grown in the Omaka Valley, hand-picked and Matured for 12 months in a mix of new French (35 per cent) and older American oak casks. It's a warm, generous wine with a strong bouquet of cherries and smoky bacon and plummy, spicy flavours, firm and youthful. The 2002 is full-coloured and firmly structured, with generous depth of ripe-fruit flavours and good, savoury complexity.

The deeply coloured 2001 vintage was grown in the Omaka Valley, hand-picked and matured for 12 months in a mix of new French (35 per cent) and older American oak casks. Still developing, it's a warm, generous wine with a strong bouquet of cherries and smoky bacon and plummy, spicy flavours, firm and youthful.

Michael Cooper (2000 Vintage) says
The full-flavoured 2000 vintage was matured for 11 months in a mix of new French (35 per cent) and older American oak casks. It offers strong plum/spice characters, with some savoury, nutty complexity and a firm finish.
