Tasting Notes

94 points from Wine Enthusiast: "Clos Pepe has vaulted into the front ranks of California Pinot Noir vineyards, and Loring has captured its terroir perfectly with this dry, complex young wine. It combines a silky elegance with enormous fruit flavors of blackberries, cherries, cola and Asian spices, wrapped into the vineyard’s signature rich tannins and crisp acids. Drink this brilliant Pinot Noir now through 2012." (6/1/2008) This is an intense, focused, complex pinot like you would expect from Clos Pepe Vineyard. Red fruit, white pepper and smoky bacon notes meld together on this wine's intriguing nose and echo on the palate. Balanced acidity and focused fruit mid-palate, there are subtle hints of oak and fine-grained tannins on the finish. Brian Loring thinks this may prove to be the best wine he's ever made and that's saying a lot. You'll want to buy some of this to enjoy now and some to lay down to enjoy in years to come.
