Papapietro Perry Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast 2008
Our Sonoma Coast wine changes with each vintage as we often try out new vineyards and either blend with others or have it stand on it’s own. In 2008 the grapes come from a vineyard in the Petaluma Gap. In this year, we have only one vineyard in the finished wine. We hope you enjoy! We have carefully refined our winemaking techniques in a way that defines our unique Pinot Noirs, separating the grapes by clone during fermentation and aging. This gives us many more blending options. We cold soak the grapes two to three days before adding several different types of yeast, cultured specifically for Pinot Noir. During the seven to twelve days it takes to ferment, we hand punch each fermenter, sometimes as often as five or six time a day to ensure that the temperature doesn’t get too warm. Once the juice is fermented, we press the fruit and move the wine into François Frères French oak barrels, and then age for 11 months before bottling.
Editorial Reviews for Papapietro Perry Pinot Noir Sonoma Coast
This is super stemmy and earthy on the nose with hints of cola, green anise seed and a touch of lavender accenting the lightly spiced, slightly jammy core of strawberry fruit. This shows lots of fruit up front, with a sweet/tart edge but this remains light and elegant in the mouth with flavors that mirror the aromas. The mouthfeel is both rich and yet light at the same time with a lovely core of wild raspberry and wild strawberry fruits accented by notes of stems, spice and earthy. With nice length and lovely purity to the sweet fruit this is a wine with very broad appeal. 92pts
Wet wool, cola, and the early-morning smell of freshly-planted crops: earth, sunshine, the minerality of fertilizer. On the palate, it's surprisingly refreshing, with a sexy sweetness that slips in and out of the pretty, tasty fruit.
Herbal, cherry aromas with a little bit of a Dr. Pepper nose. Great, spicy flavors with an edge of medicine, great acidity, tar and a bit of leather.
Big tomato and fruit nose with suntan lotion, with a very sweet a fruity body with blackberries, bananas, and coconut. I like it.
Musty funky nose. Bright sweet cherry and leather. Prickly acidic finish. Real nice.
Fantastic. Excellent color, nose, and taste. Delicious fruit up front well balanced acidty. Very enjoyable and drinking exceptionally right now.
Very rich fruit flavors, I love the crisp sweetness of the wine
i'm usually a little nervous about pinot's because i've not liked more then i've liked but this one was the best by far. very drinkable, perfect finish and the right blend of pepper and fruit.
