Community Tasting Notes (17) Avg Score: 91.9 points

  • Dark, deep violet in color. Full, forward & attractive nose of ripe fruit aromas of dark cherries, blueberries & raspberries with floral notes of violets, spice notes of allspice, nutmeg & cloves, earthy/dusty, sandalwood, herbs, minerals, dark cocoa, mocha & a hint of vanilla. Medium-full bodied with a very good concentration of balanced, silky smooth textured, plush, lush & rich, ripe fruit flavors of sweet dark cherries, jammy blackberries & plums with spices, herbs, earthy, cocoa, some cherry cola notes, minerals & a hint of vanilla. Lingering smooth finish. Drinks quite well at present and has the ripe fruit & firm structure to continue development with additional (& needed) aging.

  • Dark color and big nose and fruit. Long finish with spice on the finish. Not sure I would have pegged this as a pinot blind.

  • Big wine, not characteristic of a Pinot, except on the nose. Lovely fruit & berrys. Dark in colour, and big taste. Decanted for 2 or more hours based on previous feedback, but think this will keep longer. Lovely.

  • Has to be about at its flavor peak.

  • Pop and pour and served with food. Followed over two hours. Will re-cork and check in again. Initial impressions:
    Dark color. Nose is of black fruits with an almost gamy quality, like proscuitto. Rich fruit profile; a bit like an amarone. Some dried fruit character.
    Tasted the following day with food (some roast lamb and pizza rustica, an egg, cheese and cured pork dish).
    This is a big wine that still shows some dried fruit. The gamy notes are not as present. The ripe, sweet dark fruits show through but leave the wine a little flat.
