« Prev Next » 3 of 5

Review from original list creator: "Smelling a bit beefy and peppery this is a bit of an odd take at first with subtle citrus and pineapple aromas growing in the glass before being joined by tart red cranberry fruit and lemon verbena notes. There’s also a dustiness on the nose and blind I might very well think this to be a white wine. Tart red fruit laced with citrus notes greets the palate with nice breadth and some fine grained tannins and early mineral accents. This opens nicely across the mid-palate delivering fine raspberry fruit with a slight roasty herbal edge and a core of used wood tones that stretch out across the rather long and finely focused finish along with additional tea and herb flavors, moe dusty minerality and some tart red cherry fruit. Rather subtle and understated, this is a patio pinot for old world Pinot lovers. 88pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
