Adelsheim Elizabeths Reserve Pinot Noir 2008
Wine Tasting Notes This Elizabeths Reserve offers aromas of bright red raspberries and ripe currants with hints of black cherry. Longer contemplation reveals nuances of the smoky cedar essence of lapsang souchong tea and dried rose petal. On the palate, the flavors mimic the aromas, leading again with raspberry. The wine texture is exceptionally balanced with good upfront acidity, and a silky mouthfeel with soft tannins that linger to a strawberry cream finish. Enjoy this wine when young, or allow it to age gracefully for five or up to ten years with proper storage conditions. It will pair beautifully with the Pinot noir classics lamb, duck, grilled salmon, and aged cheeses.
Editorial Reviews for Adelsheim Elizabeths Reserve Pinot Noir
Perfumed and powerful on the nose with layered notes of fruit, woodsy spice, ripe herbs and gentle notes of wood spice. On the palate this is rich and fresh with a bright core of fruit but it lacks a bit of follow through. The balance and texture are wonderful, almost gentle but with a nice tension. This should unwind a bit with time but right now it's not showing its best. 88pts
