Ponzi Willamette Tavola Pinot Noir 2010
Editorial Reviews for Ponzi Willamette Tavola Pinot Noir
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.
