COMPTCHE RIDGE PINOT NOIR, MENDOCINO 2013
NVWE Notes: The nose of this complex young Pinot melds red currant, strawberry, bottled cherry, dried raspberry, pink peppercorn, sumac berry, dried orange peel, coriander, mace and star anise scents into elegant harmony. Panetone-like fruit and sweet-savory spice dominate on the mid-palate, where zest and tannic grip firm the mouth-feel. The finish is ultra long and delightfully spicy, as notes of cardamom, mace, star anise, caramel and leather counterpoint a richer core of red plum, red currant, whortleberry, sumac berry and pink peppercorn. It proves prettier and even more satisfying with air, and those with the patience to wait a few years will be well rewarded. 450 cases produced.
