Wild ginger-, sassafras-, walnut- and lemon rind-inflected red berries scent and flavor Carver and Marcy's 2011 Pinot Noir Wirtz Vineyard whose infectiously juicy brightness, incisive spiciness, zesty piquancy, red raspberry seed-crunch and cyanic cherry-pit glow are further augmented by a sharp and subsequently musky bite uncannily akin to rose radish. I imagined a significant contribution of stems in the fermenter given the great support, complexity, the vibrancy that attends the tannins here, but it turns out that nearly all of the fruit for this bottling was de-stemmed. Finishing with vibrant and invigorating persistence, this buoyant (12.6% alcohol) beauty ought to perform gloriously through at least 2022.
Vivid red. High-pitched redcurrant, strawberry and blood orange scents are complemented by notes of spicecake and fresh flowers. Bright, racy and subtly sweet, offering zesty red fruit and floral flavors and a bracing jolt of minerality. Closes with lingering sweetness, soft tannins and a sexy note of candied rose.
