Truchard Pinot Noir 2007
External Reviews for Truchard Pinot Noir
Not sideways. . . . This wine will make you want to lie on the beach beneath the stars and dream. I am with Erica on this one - X Winery has worlds colliding with their 2006 Pinot. The nose is totally vegetal; cabbage mixed with barnyard and hay, even a little Stilton. The palate on the other hand is a mix of bright plums and cherries. The finish is nice and spicy! I do think this wine would benefit from a little more time in the bottle, so if you are thinking ahead, get more than one!!
... this Pinot Noir is a mix of old world class meets new world charisma - the nose is all cabbage and barnyard smells over berry aromas and a little cheese. The flavors aren't so barnyard-y! There are bright berry flavors and light spice and the finish is incredible, a little metallic and almost oily as it grips your tongue! As the wine opens up, the berries take over and the finish is choke cherry and pomegranate. A tale of two worlds told in the glass - try it today!
