Serious Pinot at the top of the ladder

2009 Robert Mondavi Reserve Pinot Noir Carneros, Napa Valley 15% $60

A touch musky on the nose, but there's a lot of well used but obvious mocha, roasted nut, and toast notes here, topping the creamy cherry fruit at the moment. Rich and a little sweet on entry with intense, slightly herbal cactus pad, vegetal black cherry and black currant fruit. The oak is present on the palate, adding a base and lots of spice, but this is really about the fruit. Rich yet fairly taut in the mouth, this has a nice texture which is marred for the moment by the rather heavy load of wood tannin. Finishes with bold black cherry fruit and moderating oak notes. 90pts

    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.
