Ponzi Willamette Tavola Pinot Noir 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Milk chocolate, ripe raspberry and star anise dominate this extremely perfumed nose. The mouth hints at the same chocolate notes with vanilla and sweet red currant leading to a long finish with soft tannins.

Light if pure raspberry fruit greets the nose along with smoky hints of dried herbs, candied root vegetables and a hint of peppery spice. This is a touch chunky and shows some heft on its modest frame. There's actually a lot of fruit here that gives the impression of being slightly sweet, yet the bright acidity and gently raspy tannins keep this feeling dry and even a bit on the rustic side. The tannins pop a bit on the finish as well, with a woody dryness to them that accentuates the hint of spice on the fairly modest finish. 87pts

Brightly acid and fruit forward, largely raspberry, though not jammy. I have not be a fan of 2010s yet, as they need more time to mellow the tartness, but this one makes me want to buy a case and let it age and different intervals and continue to enjoy over the next few years. Good wine at a good price.

This fragrant nose of black cherry, brown sugar br?l?e and vanilla leads to a mouth of fresh red plums. The sweet middle leads to a silky, seamless finish that lingers with spice



Milk chocolate, ripe raspberry and star anise dominate this extremely perfumed nose. The mouth hints at the same chocolate notes with vanilla and sweet red currant leading to a long finish with soft tannins.
