Nobilo Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Lovely fruit weight. A nice combination of dark cherries and red fruit abound. This is underscored with a hint of oak and silky tannins. Persists well.

Very floral on the nose with a saline mineral edge that recalls seashells. There’s a suggestion of wood, but no fruit at this point. Round on the entry with real snap and verve in the mouth and wonderfully transparent bitter raspberry and cherry fruit. The wood comes out on the backend adding mocha and coffee tones, which are a little strong at this point, but the fruit powers through on the finish which has a firm, fruity finale that retains that bitter tone on the palate. This needs a bit of time to come together but the balance here makes this already appealing. 91pts

Medium ruby-purple colored, the 2009 Icon Pinot Noir has aromas of black cherry, kirsch and warm raspberry with some cinnamon and a whiff of dried leaves. Supported by medium-high acid and a medium level of chewy tannins, the berry and cinnamon fruit on the palate of this medium-full bodied is just a little lean, giving a medium-long finish. Drink it now to 2013.

As all the Icon Pinot Noirs have over the years, this one shows a fair amount of oak: cinnamon, toast and vanilla all mark the nose. But this medium-bodied wine also shows layers of soft, supple fruit underneath. Give it another year to integrate, then drink it over the next 3-4.

This is an aromatic wine showing black cherries and plums on the nose, complexed with integrated oak, savory notes and spice. The palate has lovely fruit weight. A nice combination of dark cherries and red fruit abound. This is underscored with a hint of oak and silky tannins. Persists well.

Lively, with fine intensity and supple texture to smoky black cherry, spice and pomegranate flavors underscored by cedary oak. Tangy structure lingers on the finish. Drink now through 2010.
