89 Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - July/August 2013

Bright red.  Lively red berry and floral aromas are deepened by notes of cola and licorice.  Smooth and supple on the palate, offering sweet raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of white pepper.  Closes with good tangy lift and cut, with no obvious tannins and good, spicy persistence.

2nd bottle same as the first. No nose to speak of - definitely not raspberry cherry and licorice and NOT brilliant ruby to the rim as WA claims. Thin, watery, one dimensional and that dimension is sour. No richness, no cola, no raspberry or black cherry preserves and definitely no Russian River opulence or Burgundian persistence. Of the 15 Wine Access wines I have purchased, 3 live up to the hype with a 4 or higher rating, 4 are over rated with a 3 or lower rating and 8 have yet to be tasted. Factor in the shipping costs and WA is not batting well.

Pinot Noir

Adored by critics, prized by collectors, Pinot Noir is one of most tantalizing yet temperamental varietals in the world. 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.
