4. Trione Pinot Noir River Road Ranch (2009)

« Prev Next » 4 of 6
Previously available for $39.00
Tight and subdued on the nose with hints of leather, pork fat, hoisin and sandy soil that are replaced by more familiar raspberry, vanilla and cola with hickory nut oak and floral top notes. Still very complex and intriguing. Very smooth on entry with good structural elements underpinning the juicy tart cherry and strawberry fruit. Air brings out some leathery nuances and a good bit of spice as well. Violets, green anise seed and something vaguely citric add detail to the palate. This tightens up on the back end to turn a touch tannic and hard on the long, cranberry/raspberry finish that shows a nicely integrated veneer of fresh oak. This is a lot of wine but it's very well balanced and long. Fruit driven for sure but there's plenty of detail as well. 92pts
