...Raspberry and strawberry fruit aromas complicated by mocha baking spices and underbrush. Sweet but high-pitched with firm acids giving shape to the flavors of red berries espresso and smoked meat. Rich and dense if a bit youthfully reduced. Broadens out impressively on the back end which features sweet tannins... Stephen Tanzers IWC.
The 2002 Pinot Noir Ryan comes across as a classic premier cru from Gevrey-Chambertin with its Allspice, beet root, cola, and earth-like personality as well as its dry, tannic, austere style. Plum, berry, and forest floor notes are also found in this... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Pinot Noir wine from California in USA. 2002 Dumol Pinot Noir Ryan Green Valley 750ml
