Don & Sons Pinot Noir Sono 2011
Our 2011 Pinot Noir invites you in with aromas of strawberry, raspberry and cranberry dusted with subtle notes of dark chocolate, purple basil and walnuts. This silky, medium-bodied wine leads with vibrant avors of red raspberry and pomegranate seed. Wonderfully earthy undertones reminiscent of Shitake mushrooms follow, while hints of caraway seeds and cedar add further complexity to the smooth lingering nish.
Editorial Reviews for Don & Sons Pinot Noir Sono
Tight on the nose and vaguely chalky early on with emerging notes of used briarwood pipe, beetroot and strawberry rhubarb pie. Rather well behaved in the mouth, this shows nice restraint to the medicinal-toned black cherry and dusty beetroot flavors. There's a bit of mineral that pops on the back end, along with hints of strawberry pie and dried herbs that gain a bit of root beer on the moderately long and very gently spicy finish. There's a nice purity to this. The fruit flavor profile is not typical Pinot, being more minty and medicinal, but it is well presented. 88pts
Apple, pomegranate, smoke, green tea and lightly toasted oak great the nose. On entry this has a touch of sweetness but that is quickly replaced with the subtle but chunky flavors of red raspberry. This is simple but clean with good flavors that while note terrible varietal are reasonably fun to drink with a touch of tannin that adds length to the finish 84pts.
Simple, one dimensional Pinot from Chile. Touches of smoke and berries, with tannins on the finish.
Great aromatics. Deep tasting without having a bitter aftertaste.
A terrifically pleasing wine. A subtle complexity, well balanced, and an nice finish.
Been buying this regularly lately as I think the price is right. A little darker & heavier than other pinots, but real slick. A variety of berry flavors; blueberry, strawberry and rasberry come to mind with a lingering vanilla finish.
Consistently a good wine. Rolls around in the mouth wonderfully. Smoky and earthy. And rich berry.
This fruity aroma wine hinted of cinnamon and other spices. Rudy color with light tannins and slight acidity makes this a pretty good Pinot Noir for the money.
