  • The colour looked vital (still) and radiant dark'ish red. Somehow it seemed slightly brighter than my "March 2012 edition” - which is pretty hard to believe (for me). The nose showed plenty of dried bright red cherries, a bit more fruit than last time and far less autumnal scents. Only a few moist leaves and hints of mushrooms were detectable. Strange enough – the taste, showed plenty of mushroom'y flavours!? Maybe even more than one year ago! The fruit flavours of dried bright cherries got more expression, smoothness and sweetness. In the whole there was far more, surprisingly far more, fruit than one year ago! Besides the mentioned cherries I snapped lively flavours which reminded me of raisins-and-nuts chocolate, very mild black pepper, only traces of fresh grounded coffee, hints of mild smoke and hardly any mineral impressions. The acid shoved off (unfortunately). Should have been a bit more left, I guess. The tannin structure used to be harder (-> positive development) and more background-expressive / thrilling (-> negative development). The finish was acceptably long and not as tart as one year ago. The entire composition seemed far more smoothed and tamed and not soooo that Tuscan-Pinot ferocious ;-). A very remarkable change within one year! Indeed a very unexpected transformation to a typical and more “regular” representative of Pinot Noir without edges! I am not quite sure what to think about it! It is still a decent Pinot. No doubt about that! And, for me, definitely better than the old Pomino Rossos. Maybe right now it appears a bit boring and too slick! I guess I liked it one year a bit more …
    Would not hold it for all too long!

  • Interesting. Fresh red berries with tart undertones on the nose, mixed in with some herbs, juniper? and an odd green edge. Well poised palate, with fine tannins and acidity with tart red berry flavors. Moderate finish. Fresh and focused, with moderate depth. Went great with pizza.

  • Its colour is very clear and juicy-lushy-richy dark red. Very stinging! My overall fragrance impression appears to be unusual for a Pinot Noir. Plenty of fresh and dried dark cherries freshly grounded coffee, mushroom antipasti, some mild juniper and a bit’ee of dark choco penetrate right up to my olfactory receptors. Maybe some animal odour as well. Anyway, a rather unusual, but exciting, Pinot so far. The taste communicates something some obvious fact to me. This wine is still far too young! My fault! I have just been too curious. The acid is immensely strong and the tannins are infantile like an ever growing senile wine geek. Whatever that last association might mean. Maybe an auto reference….OMG, I better shut up now ;-)! The different flavours are dominated by dark, spicy cherries, some blueberries, plenty of autumnal features, mushrooms and a diffuse black-earth-herb-combination. Unfortunately some impressions of raisins are undeniable. Besides the hyper strong acid the main disadvantage of the Pomino. The concentration is well proportionate and surly not distressed by too much alcohol. Make sure not to enjoy this Pinot too early. WAIT!
