Value Pinots 11/2012

20. J. Lohr Estates Falcon's Perch Pinot Noir (2010)

« Prev Next » 20 of 24
Smoky on the nose with nice cherry and cola aromas that have grilled beef, green herb and toasty oak highlights. Nicely tart and acid-driven on entry, this quickly shows some meaty flavors along with notes of black cherry pie and plenty of wood spice. The texture is fairly smooth if a little chunky with peppery accents on the mid-palate that lead to a very spiced cherry pie note on the moderately long finish, which is both a bit hot and a bit bitter with wood tannins. There's nice fruit here, you just have to love oak to enjoy it. 85pts

  • 1042430BrugmanRose Gregory, you did a very nice job on locating and tasting these Pinot Noirs. I see many of them in my local stores and just can not conclude from the labels what I am suppose to expect from each individual wine. Your analysis has been helpful in guiding me to what I would like.
