Ddo Pinot Noir Wv 375 2009
90 points Josh Raynolds (International Wine Cellar): Bright red. High-pitched red berry and spice aromas are complicated by notes of candied rose, herbs and white pepper. Suave, silky and precise, offering sweet strawberry and raspberry flavors and a deeper note of bitter cherry. Nicely balanced and pure, with very good finishing clarity and length. There's something almost Chambolle-like here. (Jul/Aug 2011)
Pale garnet color. Raspberry, strawberry, and violets on the nose, as well as some earthy and black pepper notes. Mid-plus acidity, mid-minus tannins, and high alcohol (14.1% abv). On the palate there is some sweeter notes (red cherry), probably in part due to the relatively high alcohol. Overall this is a very well balanced and pleasant, though not overly complex, wine. Will benefit from some more bottle-aging.
Huge flavor; tannic. Opens nicely.
External Reviews for Ddo Pinot Noir Wv 375
Deep color and excellent clarity. Aromas of rose petals, violets and spices. On the palate, the texture is lush and mouth-coating, but well-balanced. Refined, silky tannins are noted on the finish.
Deep and vibrant, with brilliant color and excellent clarity. Aromatically, the wine is quite open, even opulent 09 a mix of velvety rose petals, violets and spices. On the palate, the texture is lush and mouth-coating, but well-balanced. Together, they provide definition and intensity, followed by refined, silky tannins. The finish is quite long, with beautiful cherry notes.
