An exciting mixture of briary blackberry and black cherry fill the glass. Exotic spices intermingle with the lush berries. Intense is an understatement! On the palate, rich and well structured. A core of blackberry and raspberry envelope the midpalate. Layers of succulent dark fruits are beautifully balanced with acidity, spice and minerality. The alluring finish lingers with perfect elegance.
Firm, tight and somewhat closed, but with a wealth of flavor built around ripe plum, black cherry and blueberry. Juicy and full-bodied, showing a nice tannic backbone on the finish.
Bright violet. Perfumed array of red and dark berry and floral qualities, along with notes of allspice and incense. A sexy floral note comes up with air and carries onto the palate, which offers sweet raspberry and cherry-cola flavors and a hint of succulent herbs. Doesn't let up on the finish, which echoes the raspberry note and shows wonderful intensity.
The 2009 Pinot Noir Koplen Vineyard is gorgeous. Black cherries, menthol, spices, violets wrap around the palate in this sensual, alluring wine. Here the aromas and flavors tend towards the dark, sepia-toned end of the spectrum. The Koplen is layered, complete and totally beautiful. There is an element of gravitas that is particularly appealing. The Koplen was partially vinified in wood uprights, with 18% whole clusters.
