Palazzio Pinot Noir 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

91 Wine and Spirits Magazine: `Distinctively red fruited this balances sweet cherry and tart raspberry with cedar and oak spice. It feels cool in the middle the fruit juicy fat and pleasant. The cherry flavors linger for braised rabbit.` (04/09) And according to Wine Enthusiast: `Dry and full in the mouth this Pinot has a fine wight and structure. It's made from the various vineyards Testarossa buys grapes from and is virtually as good as the vineyard-designated bottlings which make it a value. Shows cherry cola tangerine zest and spicy flavors. Good through 2010 or so.`

This wine-- available in Pennsylvania State Stores as a "Chairman Select" for $24.99-- is a very wonderful Pinot, immediately you know you are drinking a very nice Pinot.
