2010 Tousey Pinot Noir 12.5%

A lovely, pale wine. This smells wonderful. A bit stemmy with a slight pine needle cast to the bright, red-fruited nose that is complex and delicate at the same time. On entry this has a fine leading edge of sweet red fruit, wild strawberry tone and more stemmy accents and a darker base. The texture is quite elegant and bright with the tannins firm yet layered under the ripe fruit. The long finish continues the theme of strawberry, herb and some cherry with maybe a bit of creamy oak rounding things out. Tense and a bit severe even, this is just lovely Pinot and it makes a statement. 90pts

  • You should try the excellentPinot Noir from Heart and Hands Wine Co, in the Finger Lakes with which I have no affiliation. However, as a wine columnist, they sent me a media sample and I was blown away.
