Viña Casablanca Pinot Noir Nimbus Estate 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Lots of mulberry and melted licorice greets the nose along with complicating notes of truffle, black currant, minty herbs and a hint of cracked pepper all layered over a dark, oily oak base. Smooth and fairly focused on entry if a little soft, there’s a fair amount of fine tannin here all wrapped up slightly funky, truffly black fruit. The oak is obvious but not prominent, though it does raise up on the finish, flowing just under the drk cherry almost curranty fruit. A bit too soft, this is not fat in the mouth but neither is it particularly lively. Might improve with a year or two of age as it is nicely perfumed and shows good focus. 87pts
