Stoller Pinot Noir Dundee Hills Estate Grown 2009

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Tight and mineral on the nose with an overlay of sweet, toasty oak and a base of red fruit framed with rose petals. This enters the mouth with terrific energy. The acidity really holds this up like a tent pole, allowing the transparent red fruit to cascade around the palate with nuanced notes of lightly nutty oak and a hint of caramel sweetness adding detail. The back end shows off more strawberry-toned fruit with the light earthy astringency of strawberry seeds and a hint of tar before the wine trails off on the clean, fresh finish. The tannins here are lovely, super fine grained and supportive, but you really don't even notice them. Suave stuff. 92pts

This had delicious sweet tannins with very deep res fruit of black cherry & strawberry. Nose shows some clove & ginger with some deep black cherry & toasted nuts. Love the texture & this is very easy drinking with the black cherry, strawberry, & some bay leaf showing throughout.

Wine & Spirits ReviewRated 91Lush and forward, this has the scent of just-cooked raspberry jam, fresh and sweet, with a meaty note that instills it with a convincing savor. Its ripe, crowd-pleasing flavors would pair well with roast chicken.Wine Tasting NotesViolets, earth, and hints of dark chocolate are exhibited on the nose. Red raspberries, black cherry and mineral weave through the palate. Mocha, soft tannins and spice on the finish.
