23. The Crusher Pinot Noir Wilson Vineyard (2009)

« Prev Next » 23 of 24
Lightly aromatic on the nose with a lovely flush of herbal, cola and lightly floral aromas over light red cherry fruit that shows nice old wood and mineral nuances. This is a touch sticky in the mouth with gentle acidity and a nice base of fine tannins helping to add some tension. The flavors are softly wiry, clear with sour cherry and herb nuances all sweetened up with light vanilla and burnt sugar notes from the oak. The finish is rather dry and woody, but there is a lingering note of that attractively pale red berry fruit wrapped in the sweetness. Turns spicier with air. 84pts

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.
