  • 2011 Alysian Wines Pinot Noir

    Medium(-) ruby, clear with some legs forming, 13,8% abv. Medium aromas of red berries, dry leaves, hints of tar and caramel or butterscotch. Dry, medium(+) acidity, medium(-) sliky tannin, medium-medium(+) alcohol, medium body. Medium flavors of red cherries, red berries, spots of pepper, with some tertiary and earthy flavors in the mid-palate like, slight mocha notes.
    Balanced, structured, this wine hangs. Good length with fruit-driven focussed finish. Well-defined and clean-cut, very elegant PN, feminine and seductive.

  • 2011 Tenuta Vitalonga Phiculle

    Medium-ruby, irregular fast-moving legs @ 14% abv. Medium aromas of bramblebush, parchment, earth, leather, mainly tertiary aromas. Dry, medium-medium(+) acidity, medium(-) soft tannin, high alcohol with noticeble heat, medium(+)-full body. Medium-medium(+) layered flavors of with 'high acid' flavors like cherries, red berry compote upfront followed with coffee arabica, leathery, earthy notes. Rich velvety texture, with sinewy, almost austere chewy structure. Good length with finish displaying some cutting acidity and tannins leaving an austere, almost calvinistic sensation.
    A serious wine, tomyoung to drink now. Not for the easy drinkers. Rated 89 for now. Will need more sampling in a couple of years with different foods to complete the assessment. At least I am intrigued by the Phiculle.
