Not a please-everyone style of Pinot—we found that out the hard way in the tasting room. I enjoyed this wine quite a bit: it’s tight, sour and leathery, both intense and delicate at the same time. The finish is long and juicy, and the nose shows cherry, earth and tree-bark notes. Another taster found it just too wiry, even thin. If you’re tired of Pinots that taste…
This is a pretty Chard, with a medium-long, dry finish. Rounded on the palate, with stone fruit and light toast flavors, it zips up tight, tall and dry on the back end. Imported by The Vine Press.
A fairly powerful Pinot, if somewhat sour and lacking harmony at this stage. Aromas are of plums and dates, while the palate’s flavors are of plum skin, iced tea and cheese rind. Black peppery on the finish. May just be dumb in its youth. Worth revisiting in 6 months. Imported by The Vine Press.
