Expert Reviews

92 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - May/June 2013

(14.8% alcohol; 15% whole clusters; 65% new oak; from a cool vineyard in Green Valley):  Good bright, full red.  Pepper and spice notes lift rich aromas of cherry, cranberry, cola and earth.  Smooth, lush and concentrated, with excellent breadth to its strong red fruit, spice and earth flavors.  Conveys a light touch for such a plush pinot. Finishes with fine-grained, dusty tannins and surprising lift.

For many wine enthusiasts, this is part of the appeal of Pinot -- it doesn't reveal its charms easily. Pinot Noir's virtue also stems from the unique characteristics of the grape. The skins are especially delicate, which accounts for the lighter color and body of finished wine. But, despite the delicacy, the best wines have excellent backbone and...
