LA PITCHOUNE PINOT NOIR, VAN DER KAMP VINEYARD, SONOMA MOUNTAIN 2013
NVWE Notes: As spicy as it is fruity and as forthcoming as it is age-worthy, this is a fascinating Pinot Noir. The nose builds aromas of sour cherry, red raspberry, pomegranate, blood orange, rose, sumac, vanilla toffee, star anise and baking spices into a bright and focused medley. Things tighten-up a bit on the palate, where polished tannins and barrel notes bring contrast, yet the finish is long and the wine’s delivery already extremely satisfying: as flavors of black cherry, black raspberry, red cherry, strawberry cobbler, orange-cranberry relish, clove, anise, sandalwood, ginger root and humidor-spice find a seductive harmony. Terrific already, it will handsomely reward three or four more years of cellar-time. 100 cases produced.
