Flight 1 (5 Notes)

Flight 2 (5 Notes)

  • 2007 Copain Pinot Noir Monument Tree

    USA, California, North Coast, Anderson Valley

    Baking spices and notes of pine on a sweet fruited nose. Broad fruit but not extracted and lean feeling. Pomegranate, cranberry and cherry notes with some grip and juiciness. This was bigger than I expected and even had a tinge of heat. Got better becoming more integrated with air but still not as good as I have expected from recent Copains.

  • 2004 Melville Pinot Noir High Density

    USA, California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills

    Ripe baked fruits on the nose showing notes of tomato, spice and grape/apple skins. Bit simple and lean feeling with some grip still. Not too big but uneven.

  • 2003 Patrick Lesec Châteauneuf-du-Pape Cuvée Bargeton

    France, Rhône, Southern Rhône, Châteauneuf-du-Pape

    Nose shows some rustic notes but more raisins and molasses. Big, broad and extracted with grippy tannins and some heat. A big full throttle CdP not for the traditionalist.

    Lots of pepper on a ripe candy like nose. Thick with tons of tannin and simple expression.

  • 2005 Roar Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard

    USA, California, Central Coast, Santa Lucia Highlands

    This is drinking quite a bit better than my last go around a couple years back. It seems to have come to together nicely showing a balanced palate and a lightly spiced red fruited nose. Still on the big side of things but not clumsy or over done. Good stuff.
