Light golden in color. Nose of lemon, honeysuckle, honey and almond. It really swirls across the tongue with honeydew, pineapple, peach, meyer lemon and honeyed stone fruits. It has a nice bright texture and excellent acidity. Really enjoyable, but only hinting at the level of sweetness found in many Spatlese reislings.
Almost missed out on tasting this lovely Pinot. Their credit card machine at the winery was down, so there was a delay in processing our purchase. The server said we could have a taste of anything else that we were interested in trying, so I told her to surprise me with something that I would like and she poured my wife and I a taste of this little gem.
We had already made our purchase, but after tasting it, decided that we needed to have this one, as well.
Lots of red fruit and a hint of dried herbs , cleanly delineated acidity, with an undercurrent of brushy soil and undergrowth.
We had tasted a lot of younger Pinots and many of them were braced by tannic structure. This one is very well balanced right now, but still has the backbone to be fantastic for years to come.
