Refreshing, lively and vibrant, with zesty wild berry, raspberry and anise flavors that are tight-knit and focused, ending with a beam of juicy berry flavors. (JL)
Black cherries, smoke, cola, plums and licorice are some of the many notes that jump from the glass in the 2011 Pinot Noir Le Caprice. This is the most powerful and structured of the 2011 Pinots. Firm tannins support the bracing, vibrant finish. Here it is the wine's broad shoulders and pure intensity that stand out most. I very much like the energy and tension in the 2011. (AG)
Deep ruby. Heady scents of black raspberry, candied flowers, cola and Asian spices. Sappy, expansive and pure, offering vibrant red and dark berry flavors and touches of star anise and cinnamon. Rich but lively, even delicate. Seamless and sweet on the lingering finish. (ST)
The 2011 Pinot Noir La Caprice, which was harvested before any damaging rains arrived and is above the fog line on the Sonoma Coast, exhibits classic notes of black raspberries, graphite, flowers, red and black fruits, spice and forest floor. Not quite as rich or dense as the 2010, or as structured and chewy as the 2009, the evolved, seductive 2011 should provide enormous pleasure over the next 10-12 years. (RP)
