The color filters light down to a beautiful translucent ruby, brilliant and pure. The aromas could not come from anything other than Pinot Noir, reminiscent of cherry, tea, pie spice and a forest in autumn. The cherries burst red, ripe and zingy on the palate, the tea persists, as does the earthiness, all joined by a touch of clove and vanilla. The flavors live on a silken sensual texture brought into balance by invigorating brightness. Food brings out the best in this wine, tempering its vibrancy, while deepening and focusing its cascade of flavors.
The 2009 Pinot Noir emerges from the glass with layers of perfumed red fruit and sweet spices. This fleshy, generous Pinot is best enjoyed over the next few years, while the fruit retains its juicy exuberance.
