Wakefield Pinot Noir 2010

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Very floral and astringent on the nose with crazy aromas of sneaker rubber, yellow wild flowers, eucalyptus, bricky earth and oatmeal, all over exotic, pomegranate seed-inflected red berry fruit. This enters the mouth with some tension from the considerable tannin structure. The cherry fruit shows a slightly burnished quality with herbal background notes and brick red earth adding complexity. This really turns tannic on the finish, which is rustic and coarse and not fruity enough or intensely flavored enough to help handle all the drying tannins. To boot, there's a little heat here as well. 80pts
