Top Luxury Pinot Noir Tasted 12/13

5. Trombetta Gap's Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir (2011)

« Prev 5 of 5
Average price: $60.00 from 3 stores
Intense with Pinot fruit on the nose but at the same time there are unusual aromas of sandalwood, iris, jasmin. musk and sandstone adding detail. Really rather perfumed in a masculine, cologne kind of way almost leathery and smelling slightly of peaches and diesel. Slippery on entry with fine minerality right up front, soft tannins, a broad mouthfeel that is transparent with slightly astringent red fruits currant and cranberry on the palate and a hint of underlying bitterness adding tension. the acidity adds a hint of brightness on the palate before this fades on the subtle and long finish. Elegant and complex, the oak treatment here imparts quite a unique aromatic profile. 92pts
