One of his better offerings in a good place at present. Easy quaff with or without food, more fruit-based, no cola notes.

Typical Loring style, with some nice character as noted by other tasters (mostly dark cherry & light cola). Maybe not the most dynamic Rosella's, but still a good pairing with smoked salmon and an enjoyable red. Balanced as usual.

2009 Loring Wine Company Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard

Sta. Rita Hills more

2/11/2016 - Purslane Likes this wine: 93 points

This deeply purple wine had a very scary start. In place of the dark black fruit flavors and muscular tannin that the Pinots from the Clos Pepe Vineyard are famous for featuring, was an invasive rock candy sweet taste in both the nose and body, as if the grapes included some Zinfandel. I took a small sip day after day hoping the wine would revert back to its signature taste. Only 9 days later with a third of the bottle left did the detached sweetness diminish to the point where the primary taste became blackberry and black currant with firmly structuring tannin and acidity. The wine also needs more age to develop a caressing texture.

Aerated with a Vinturi and decanted for one hour. Aromas and flavors of raspberry, plum, cherry, underbrush, earth and spice. Medium bodied with good persistence. Paired with penne, chicken, radicchio and a balsamic vinegar reduction sauce.

Pop and pour, followed for 3 hours. Decent grip on the stems, red cherry and strawberry-scented creme-fraiche on the nose. Hint of red licorice in the background. 60 minutes of bottle air saw the edges of this soften nicely, this is a solidly-priced and reasonable PN in the heart of its window. Drink by 2018.

took some time to open up even after. the vinturi. this has plenty of acidity and could have held for a good time longer before drinking. lovely cherries and rose petals on the front of a well balanced wine. will see how tomorrow holds for the remainder.

The nose has elements of oak and mushrooms, mid palate is very cherry and the finish goes on for more than 30secs. High value for the price point.

Beautiful aromatics. It's youth shines through but all the other players carry it well. Deftly balanced with some sweet red fruits of cherries and raspberries. Mouthfeel is intense; There is a mild sweetness running all along. Intricate tannins and bouncy acidity. Long finish that is true to all before it. Nice job!

Dark blue fruits with hefty alcohol (heat) on the finish. Rich and flavorful, if a bit unbalanced, but still yummy if consumed with substantially rich food.

A typical Loring profile for sure, and one of their better ones. Has a good balance of cherry fruit and cinnamon spice with a very pleasant lingering finish.

14.7% abv. Screwcap closure. Purple color; opaque. Very spicy and earthy. Dark fruits on the palate with a lengthy finish. Big and bold this paired well with a beef, onion, bell peppers stir fry and another day with ground beef-stuffed cabbage. I haven't been purchasing Loring Wine Company wines lately but do have some older vintages to work through. I was going to score this 86 but see that the community average is quite a bit higher and my score may be based more on my personal preferences than the quality of the winemaking so will not enter a formal score.
