William Cole Vineyards Albamar Pinot Noir 2011

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This is very reduced out of the bottle, smelling stinky and rubbery. With air, this turns quite stemmy, slightly vegetal and earthy. Bright and light in the mouth with brisk acidity that shows off the wild cherry fruit that's topped with stemmy, herbal notes and carries with it a light, savory edge. This is lightly spicy with white pepper notes and some stony notes on the back end leading to a clean, mineral-laden, bitter cherry finish that has solid persistence. Nice Old World style wine but many will want more fruit. 87pts

Soft aromas of strawberry with a hint of brambly raspberry. High bright acidity, moderate alcohol, light body and moderate to light tannins, medium plus intensity. Flavors of strawberry, tart red cherry and a hint of watermelon jolly rancher and raspberry. Moderate finish. Tasty
