Community Tasting Note

September 14, 2013 - Deep dark red, garnet.
Very energetic and dense, with a little lighter rim.
Powerful Fruit Aromas of Black and Sour Cherries. Dark Berries.
Black Tea, traces of Cinnamon, Licorice and Eucalypt.
Spiciness of Cloves and Herbs. Little Leather.
Almost excessive, but complex with inviting aromas!
Ripe Red Fruit Flavors, again, Cherries, Berries (Raspberry) and some Plums. Herbal Spiciness pairs with Green Characters of Unripe Tomatoes.
Vital Acidity and Gravelly Tannins. Fascinating Coolness!
Finishes long with Fruit, traces of Oak and little Saltiness.
Out of the ordinary, but special and interesting.
This is an interesting, but no great Pinot Noir whose power reminds me of New World- wine (and not of Pinot Noir!).
A lot of color, structure and body, but unfortunately lacking elegance, refinement, balance and typicity. Sometimes less is more…
Needs time to develop and settle. A Pinot Noir build for the future.
