2009 Hop Kiln HK Bridge Selection Pinot Noir 13.9% $70

 

Musky and floral on the nose with lots of earth and mineral base notes. This is a bit tight, but shows off flashes of huckleberry and wild strawberry fruit with over soft but obvious sweet and toasty oak notes. Rather light and elegant on entry, this almost floats across the palate with superb balance that is just thrown off by the slight raspy edge of youthful yet ripe tannins. The mid-palate has excellent clarity to the cherry and raspberry fruit, with the oak spice adding some detail on the back end. This finishes bright and dusty, with cranberry, wild cherry fruit and those youthful tannins. This has freshness and elegance with lovely edge of ripeness, eminently drinkable and pure. 91pts

    Wow it looks like you had fun tasting the >$50 Pinots. The lowest score was 90. I even think I can find some of these. If I do, your opinion will encourage me to invest the coin.
