Value Pinots 11/2012

8. William Cole Vineyards Albamar Pinot Noir (2011)

« Prev Next » 8 of 24
Average price: $12.69 from 3 stores
This is very reduced out of the bottle, smelling stinky and rubbery. With air, this turns quite stemmy, slightly vegetal and earthy. Bright and light in the mouth with brisk acidity that shows off the wild cherry fruit that's topped with stemmy, herbal notes and carries with it a light, savory edge. This is lightly spicy with white pepper notes and some stony notes on the back end leading to a clean, mineral-laden, bitter cherry finish that has solid persistence. Nice Old World style wine but many will want more fruit. 87pts

  • 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.
