Last of our three bottles. Consistently tasted well. This one, no flaws, no sediment, no rim variation. Classic pinot nose with sweet berry flavors. No tannin. Low to medium alcohol. Short to medium finish. Beautiful work Failla. Very drinkable. A lot of cellar life left in this one.
This is a pinot noir that compares to Burgundy the way an Australian Shiraz compares back to the Northern Rhone. It works a lot better with Shiraz/Syrah. This wine is cloudy and dark and sweet. Too sweet. Ripe and juicy plum. Just doesn't seem to sit right on a pinot.
Deep ruby red color with great berry flavors and lots of structure. It was nicely balanced in tannins and fruit - quite Rhone like in style. We served this with a smoky pork shoulder that had been braised in a tomatoe based sauce over noodles. It was a great pairing. We kept the rest in our Euro Cave and oddly on the next day it tasted very off.
