Tasting Notes

92 points from Wine Spectator: "Tightly structured, firm and concentrated, with a trim beam of spice, earthen floor, dried currant and cranberry fruit that holds onto its earthy tannins through the long finish. Drink now through 2013. 1,137 cases made." (06/09) Roessler has been on our radar for a long time, dating back to their inaugural releases in 2000 that were made by the now famous Wells Guthrie of Copain. While Wells still hangs around in a consulting winemaker fashion, Scott Shapely, brother-in-law to Wells and former assistant winemaker at Siduri and Novy now makes the wines and is doing one heck of a job. The "La Brisa" is one of Roessler's three Pinot Noir "appellation bottlings," the fruit mostly coming from two vineyards - Griffin's Lair and Campbell Ranch. The warm, long summer of 2007 produced many great Pinots and this wine is no exception. With the high-toned prickly red fruits that are so common these days in Pinots that use whole cluster fermentation the nose is packed with boisterous aromas of raspberry, wild strawberry and pomegranate while depth is added by underlying notes of unsweetened cocoa powder and Christmas pudding. The palate turns to the soil, picking up delicious savory tones of mushroom and thyme, but don't worry fruit hounds there is plenty here for you too. Ripeness is the specialty of this wine and the slick boysenberry, fig paste and blueberry notes are more than enough to make this wine worth its paltry $25 price tag. (Bryan Brick, K&L)
