Tasting Notes

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated red. Heady red fruits and spices on the nose, with suggestions of potpourri and sandalwood in the background. Silky, seamless and very sweet, offering deep raspberry and cherry flavors and a hint of cinnamon. Very suave and alluring, with excellent finishing clarity and sappy persistence." (Nov/Dec, 2010). 92+ points Robert Parker: "The 2008 Pinot Noir Mount Carmel (14.8%) exhibits plenty of black cherry and strawberry notes with hints of lead pencil shavings, Chinese black tea, and earth. Dark ruby, medium to full-bodied, with a striking minerality, this is among the tightest knit and most structured and backward of the 2008 Pinots. One senses that everything is trying to burst the seams beneath its structured veneer. Give it 1-2 years of bottle age and drink it over the following 10-15." (8/10) 91 points Alan Meadows' Burghound.com: "Notably floral but here there is more obvious spice influence to the primarily red berry fruit aromas that gracefully introduce suave medium-bodied flavors that possess ample amounts of dry extract that confer a velvety character to the delicious, mouth coating and long finish." (8/10)
