Community Tasting History

Community Tasting Notes (average 83.9 pts. and median of 85 pts. in 17 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by Bender Bending Rodriguez on 2/20/2012 & rated 81 points: Didn't take careful notes; unremarkable but OK Pinot. Mostly remember it being somewhat weak-bodied in the midpalate. (1697 views)
 Tasted by dbarco on 5/29/2011 & rated 84 points: Mostly medium. Medium body, medium acidity, moderate tannins - in fact very smooth. Lots and lots of cherries, medium complexity with some earthiness. Overall a bit shallow in mid-palate and finish. (2166 views)
 Tasted by BSpdx on 3/5/2011 & rated 83 points: Smooth and silky, but very little depth to the flavor profile. Touches of cherries and strawberries, and a hint of fennel but not much else. Flat with little finish. Not offensive in any real way, just not a lot to the effort. (2177 views)
 Tasted by BRENTEF on 11/14/2010 & rated 84 points: ok..not making my ties curl. (1956 views)
 Tasted by martcouz on 8/29/2010 & rated 81 points: C'est léger. Ça pinotte, mais très légèrement. Pas de quoi écrire à sa mère. Décevant. (2136 views)
 Tasted by bjecjohnson on 6/25/2010 & rated 86 points: SMELL: Sour cherries and topsoil.
TASTE: Nice acidity and a nice smooth finish. Went well with the copper river salmon. (1684 views)
 Tasted by Richard Jennings on 4/10/2010 & rated 90 points: Pinot Tasting with John Winthrop Haeger (WineBank, Menlo Park, California): Focused, green, menthol nose; tart red fruit, menthol, mineral palate; medium finish (2094 views)
 Tasted by Craig Johnson on 3/19/2010 & rated 65 points: Leather and pepper (1318 views)
 Tasted by lano on 1/30/2010 & rated 87 points: Light ruby in color. Very nice nose of cherries. Flavor profile was that of cherries as well, but one-dimensional and fairly flat. Very light and would pair well with foods that aren't too heavy, but not particularly my style overall. (1671 views)
 Tasted by annerk on 10/5/2009 & rated 86 points: 50+5+12+14+6 Garnet red, cherry and a bit of baby powder on the nose. Cherry jam and spice on the palate with a velvety finish that quickly limps away. (1831 views)
 Tasted by Beavis77 on 6/13/2009: Bright red cherry nose with an earthy underpinning. Enjoyable nose.
Lighter bodied, but with nicely balanced flavors. Has that great earthy, red cherry flavor. Not overly complex and the acidity seemed a little light, so I doubt this is going to hang around very long, but is very enjoyable, and a wonderful food wine. (1853 views)
 Tasted by AndrewSGHall on 4/21/2009: Ohio v World; 4/20/2009-4/21/2009 (Columbus, Ohio): 2nd place Blah. This was dull and flat. Lacked bright acids or depth. (2245 views)
 Tasted by hutch on 4/8/2009 & rated 86 points: Wine Marketing Tasting (Newport): Not up to the standard that former bottles have been at. The acidity is a little high. 86-88 (2350 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.
