Tasting Notes

From Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid red. Spicy cherry and raspberry on the fragrant nose, along with sexy oak spices, white pepper and cola. Pliant red berry flavors are firmed by silky tannins, picking up sweet mocha and baking spice qualities on the back end. Finishes bright and refreshingly bitter, with good clarity and length." (Jul/Aug '11)

    This pinot is showing exceptionally well in its youth! Aromas of red fruit and spice give way to rich cherry fruit and mocha notes on the medium bodied palate. Just enough acid is present to balance the elegant tanins that finish off this stunning wine. Should be great for years to come.

    One of my early favorites from 2009, this pinot noir shows dark cherry fruit and an appealing density on the palate. There is just a hint of a fresh, mint like quality on the finish. De Ponte makes good wine; familiarize yourself with them if you haven't tried these before.
