Deep red. Wild strawberry, raspberry and a hint of incense on the highly expressive nose. Suave, sweet and silky in texture, with zesty acidity sharpening the flavors of red berry preserves, candied rose and spices. Spreads out nicely on the back end, finishing long and sweet, with no obvious tannins.
Full-bodied, firm and tannic, offering a complex aroma of gravel, plum and raspberry. Ends with herb-laced tannins.
Smelling of cherries and sweet spices that hint at cinnamon and nutmeg, this decently focused Pinot is a touch fleshy and viscous on the palate. It has enough underlying acid to stay within the lines of appropriate balance and is ready to enjoy now if that is your wont.
The 2009 Pinot Noir Aphorist Bartolomei Vineyard is soft, forward and inviting. Sweet dried cherries, mint, flowers and spices are woven together in this accessible, open Pinot. The mid-weight structure suggests the wine is best enjoyed over the next few years. This is very pretty and inviting. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2015. Carroll Kemp left a career in the film industry to focus on his passion for making wine. Kemp focuses mostly on cooler-climate sites and tends to pick on the early side. The wines are made with native yeasts in a style that emphasizes juiciness and approachability, but also structure.
