I had been holding this wine since 2010 but decided to drink it based on the drinkability report. Well, this revealed a delicate, soft and supple expression of Pinot Noir..an absolute pleasure on the palate with very fragrant bouquet and texture. Among the best pinot's which I have enjoyed in many years
This is drinking well. The past two years have helped it. Lighter color, with good baking spice and floral notes supporting the black cherry fruit. Strong acidity remains, and the finish is smooth. No rush to drink up. This avoids the pitfalls of some 2007s that have become flabby. A-
Medium ruby, chalky floral nose. Dry, lightly tart with after sweetness of raspberry, caramel note. Lovely light body and fruit on the Pnp. Finishes with some light tannins and celery, very well balanced with light acid, good silky mouth feel. Getting better in the glass with some air. Another night and the bright fruit with nice acid element is showing along with some smooth tannins and velvety mouthfeel. Really nice food wine. Hot Damn, did this get good with another day! Luscious mouthfeel, beautiful balance of tart fruit and light tannins. Decant or leave in the cellar for a few more years. John makes some out standing PN, many years of life for this wine.
14.3% alcohol. Black cherry color. Pretty nose of black cherry, blackberry, and baking spice. In the mouth, velvety with ripe cherry fruit, baking spice, and a floral hint. Good acidity powers the wine through the finish. A-
