LA PITCHOUNE PINOT NOIR HV '13
LA PITCHOUNE PINOT NOIR, HOLDER VINEYARD, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: Well focused, zesty and full of charming fruit and spice, the nose of this elegant bottling offers Maraschino cherry, raspberry, pomegranate, strawberry, rose, orange peel tea, sandalwood, star anise and baking-spice aromas. It is bigger and darker on the palate, where distinctive notes of dried herbs, orange peel tea and white chocolate accent fruit flavors of black raspberry, dark cherry, strawberry and blueberry, with baking-spice, star anise, sandalwood and peppercorn in support. Lingering, dinner-balanced and already appealing, it will be much more so if allowed three years of cellar-time. 100 cases made.
