Almost a dark purple through to the rim, no bricking at all. Poured into my ginormous Riedel Somm Burg glass. This stuff has a nose...blinded there is no way this is a cali pinot, its Vosne...earthy high toned red fruits underbrush and asian spice. Tart and sour cherry with strawberry with a bit of floral component. Love the spice component i find so pleasing in most VR burgs, and plenty of acid left to frame the fruit.
Just keep sticking my nose into the glass its so complex and intriguing. This is what I love about good Pinot with a little bit of age on them.....killer
UCD wine group (Denver, CO): Decanted 2 hours. Violet red. Evocative nose of cherries, blackberries, forest floor and peppery spice. Really pleasing palate with weighty fruit and focusing acidity and bit of flinty tannin. This was very fun to ‘nose’ as well as drink.
Pebble Beach Food and Wine; 3/27/2008-3/30/2008 (Pebble Beach Resort, CA): Deep ruby color. Nose is dense and complex with blackberries. Bright smooth palate adding hints of game and roasted almonds. Long complex finish with tar and mocha. Rather acidic, crisp and with a slight syrupy feel. though a bit hot on the finish, is well balanced and carries the alcohol well.
