Roessler Pinot Noir Chalone Brosseau 2006
Cola, plum, and spice greet on the nose of our 2006 Brosseau Vineyard Pinot Noir, and the fruit opens into blackberry, plum, and hints of black currant. Full of dark fruit and minerality, with a great charred oak character, the palate expands into Dark cherry and plum, (and even a hint of blueberry), along with a woodsy, earthy quality that grows on both the palate and nose. The minerality lends a lush texture and viscosity to the mouthfeel which compliments the grippy tannic profile and carries the wine through a finish of sweet dark fruit, toast, dried tobacco, and peppery spice.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
Editorial Reviews for Roessler Pinot Noir Chalone Brosseau
A little bit too overtly oaky with a coconut, vanilla laced quality to the floral tinged, sweet tobacco earthiness that rounds out the rather candied red licorice quality on the nose. A bit aggressive in the mouth with noticeable tannins and integrated acids complementing the restrained fruit. This has a very earthy core tot he fruit and mineral and mint tones add cut and focus. Still a touch young this will benefit from a year in the cellar. 2010-2016 91pts
A freakshow without the main attraction. Very sugary citrus aroma and mouth, fruity, pepper, weak finish.
Deeper, more rich pinot than the others. Darker fruit in the nose that is red plum and nice earth. The wine is earthier than the others. Big acid to the wine. Needs time to integrate but will be very nice.
Floral with black fruit on the nose intersected with some black spice. Tangy acidity with some bitter black fruit which I always enjoy. I also detected some buttered italian bread for some reason. For 14.7% alcohol, I found the wine to be mostly balanced.
