Top Premium Pinot Noir tasted 11/13

7. Trione Pinot Noir Russian River Valley (2010)

« Prev Next » 7 of 8
Average price: $37.00 from 3 stores
Compact on the nose with an underlying salinity/seashell character to the sweet tobacco laced dark berry, mulberry fruit on the nose. Rich and seamless in the mouth with juicy acidity and polished, ripe tannins wrapped up in a blanket of black raspberry and mulberry fruit. This is tight, and shows some obvious wood on the backpalate that the fruit has yet to cover. The wood adds a nice aspect to the black cherry fruit as it emerges on the backend and on the moderately long, firm and focused finish. This is not ready. Texturally it’s ready for dinner but it is definitely holding something in reserve on the palate. It does show a touch of heat on the finish. 91pts
