Winemaker Notes

Spiced blackberry and raspberry with notes of violet and tobacco frame this expressive nose. The mouth is silky textured with sweet bing cherry and black cassis balanced by firm acidity and well-integrated tannins.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast

Detailed and elegant, this requires a little extra time and attention to show its strengths. It's a subtle mix of spice, cocoa and blackberry notes, with a touch of tobacco; the scents and flavors mingle seamlessly. A hint of cola surfaces on the finish, lingering gracefully for more than a minute.

The Wine Advocate

Luisa Ponzi decided not to make any vineyard designates in the 2009 vintage so the 2009 Pinot Noir Reserve was the beneficiary of that fruit. Dark ruby red in color, it exhibits an alluring perfume of cedar, Asian spices, incense, lilacs, black cherry, and black raspberry. Meatier and richer than the Willamette Valley bottling, it has enough structure to evolve for 1-2 years and will deliver optimum drinking from 2012 to 2019.
