 Tasted by Loren Sonkin on 9/27/2014 & rated 90 points: Women in Wine - Mike G and Nola visit Cleveland; 9/27/2014-9/29/2014 (A Restaurant on Lee Road): This is very nice. I was surprised how open and accessible it seemed. The nose has cherries with some spice. Medium bodied. Drinks easily with a surprising amount of layering already. Very elegant wine. (969 views)
 Tasted by David_T on 9/26/2014 & rated 91 points: Earth and red fruit, mostly cherry. Nicely balanced with medium acid/tannins. (548 views)
 Tasted by Libiamo! on 7/2/2014 & rated 92 points: Clear medium ruby core that goes almost all the way to the rim. On the nose, intense and ripe, a melange of plum, cassis, sweet ripe red fruit, coulis de framboise, still showing a lot of freshness. Medium plus acidity and length with notes of baking spice. Good concentration. Drinking well now, but could use some bottle ageing. (847 views)
 Tasted by dcwino on 11/7/2013 & rated 91 points: World Wine Symposium 2013 - Kevin and Kelly's excellent adventure; 11/6/2013-11/14/2013 (Villa D’este, Lake Como): Very MSD, big, earthy and chunky. Red fruits, ripe blackberries, dark spices, lavender, mushroom and earth. Excellent concentration, sweet ripe fruit expression and good acidity. A bit tight and need at least ten more years for all the components to come together. (1856 views)
 Tasted by grafstrb on 11/1/2012 & rated 94 points: -- popped and poured --
-- tasted non-blind over 3 days --

NOSE: DAY 1: rich candied cherry aroma; deep and resonant earthy note in the background; slight hint of pleasurable funk – horse tacking; about 90 min. in the Nose is more tart than upon opening. DAY 2: expressive rhubarb/cherry; floral soap; no funkiness; complex. DAY 3: “darker” now than previous two days.

BODY: medium-light to medium bodied; garnet-violet color of medium to medium-deep depth.

TASTE: DAY 1: initially: really weird off flavor – oak?; non-descript fruits; some mineral; slight funk; what is going on with this??? 90 min in: same thing; I’m putting the cork back in this and leaving it for tomorrow. DAY 2: lots of mineral; deep cherry and red currant; has definitely opened up over the last 24 hours, but is still obviously holding back; very well-balanced; fine, moderately drying tannins; good acidity; moderate to moderate+ fruit concentration; 13.5% alc. not noticeable; fruit is slightly bitter; moderate oak; mineral-laden palate; needs lots of time. DAY 3: still holding back, as on Day 2, and not quite as vibrant/complex as Day 2. Absolutely must not open bottles of this wine right now.

B: 50, 5, 14, 16, 9 = 94+ (1676 views)

Pinot Noir

Varietal character (Appellation America) | Varietal article (Wikipedia)
Pinot Noir is the Noble red grape of Burgundy, capable of ripening in a cooler climate, which Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot will not reliably do. It is unpredictable and difficult both to grow and to vinify, but results in some of the finest reds in the world. It is believed to have been selected from wild vines two thousand years ago. It is also used in the production of champagne. In fact, more Pinot Noir goes into Champagne than is used in all of the Cote d'Or! It is also grown in Alsace, Germany, the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Croatia, Serbia, Italy, Austria, and so forth, with varying degrees of success.

Les vins de Bourgogne (Bureau interprofessionnel des vins de Bourgogne) (and in English)
Burgundy - The province of eastern France, famous for its red wines produced from Pinot Noir and its whites produced from Chardonnay. (Small of amounts of Gamay and Aligoté are still grown, although these have to be labeled differently.) The most famous part of the region is known as the Cote d'Or (the Golden Slope). It is divided into the Cote de Beaune, south of the town of Beaune (famous principally for its whites), and the Cote de Nuits, North of Beaune (home of the most famous reds). In addition, the Cote Chalonnaise and the Maconnais are important wine growing regions, although historically a clear level (or more) below the Cote d'Or. Also included by some are the regions of Chablis and Auxerrois, farther north.
