Advanced tasting group of winos rated this 1 of 9 high end Pinots. Outstanding, fruity nose; good balance and superb finish. CT drink by says it still has 4 more good years in the bottle. Wait or enjoy now.
A nose of dark cherry and spices, dark garnet in color. A full bodied single vineyard PN, with black cherry, blueberry, cola, with long finish of spices. Not your petite Pinot, delicious, in a great drinking zone. www.winelx.com
very delicious! On the rich side of the spectrum as can be expected with this producer but well balanced. Dark color but light shone through. Perhaps lacking a bit of finish but not lacking in complexity.
This wine demonstrates that Pinot Noir can compete in the Big Red category of dark and dense wines. The color is near opaque black. Drying tannins come into the mouth with the first sip and continue through the swallow. The taste is mouth coating, long, and very ripe. Black fruit flavors dominate, including blackberry, black currant, black plum, and black cherry. The most intense non-fruit flavor is a pushy clove, which comes from the oak barrel used for storage, and edges near to being an invasive flavor capable of interfering with the enjoyment of more delicious flavors. However, after 5 years of bottle age, the clove as well as a jammy flavor have receded though not ended. This wine was superb with grilled lamb chops. Overall, this Pinot Noir especially appeals to Malbec lovers. But if the wine continues to get more balanced, savory, and complex with additional age, its final score will be significantly higher.
