Kent Rasmussen Pinot Noir St. Helena 2014

Member Review by Nicolaus Bauer:

Nose of black cherries, mushrooms and vanillia and smoke. The taste could be a little bit more fruity and for my opinion the aftertaste is a little bit to bitter. I definitely enjoyed the wine. It is not overpowered and opend up really nicely, but it could be slightly more powerful in fruit.

Kent Rasmussen Winery:
We've been making fabulous Pinot Noir since 1979, and to that we've added a single-vineyard Petite Sirah, a lovely Chardonnay, and various esoteric wines that change every year - Late Harvest Viognier, Riesling, Cabernet Franc... make an appointment to see us at our convenient Silverado Trail winery !

All Pinot Noirs from the Carneros are excellent. As a frequent consumer of a number of labels from the area, while this one doesn't have as much body as the best of them, it is above average from that region. In fact I'm having one 2006 Rasmussen today. 09/06/2009.

The nose was very Pinot Noir: some black fruit, leather and barnyard. The taste curve was easy to describe and very enjoyable. Nice, clean fruit upfront and a leathery and smooth finish. I found the transition between the start and the finish to be interesting as it felt like the tide coming in. Sometimes the taste was the fruit other times the the leather until, eventually, the latter took over. The finish was medium length. This was good with or without food but really shined when matched with my Duck
