Montinore William Pinot Noir 2007
Our ‘07 Parsons is a medium garnet color with brick hues at the rim characteristic of all of our Pinot from ‘07. The prominent aroma is an interesting blend of ripe red cherry, caramel, mocha and sage with hints of freshly turned soil. On the palate there is a burst of cherry and pie spice with overtones of strawberry and earth. The tannins are soft and chewy with a lively long finish.
External Reviews for Montinore William Pinot Noir
This has a dark garnet color with a brick rim. It is very aromatic for a young wine with notes of Black raspberry, blackberry, toasted hazelnuts and hints of forest floor. On the palate the ripe blackberry coats your mouth supported by firm but fine grained tannins and accented with flavors of Bing cherry, roasted nuts and hints of toast, fresh berries and pie spice. A long finish completes the statement.
The 2007 growing season was a bit of a nail biter for Pinot Noir but in the end we couldnt happier with the results. We had a cool wet Spring a cool summer and a couple of scattered rains in late September early October but this turned out to be just what our Pinot vines wanted to produce classic complex Pinot Noir. The 07 is very aromatic with notes of raspberry Bing cherry cranberry and baking spices with hints of rhubarb and mocha. On the palate it is fresh and ripe with more cherry raspberry and spice and subtle notes of earth and mocha that unfolds in layers in the mouth. The finish lingers with flavors of strawberry red berries and spice. This is a wine that should age very nicely.
