MAGGY HAWK PINOT NOIR "JOLIE" ANDERSON VALLEY 2011
NVWE Notes: This fine new Pinot Noir unfolds as a complex marriage of rich red fruits and savory spice. The nose layers notes of red cherry, black cherry, pomegranate, whortleberry, red plum and red rose over well integrated shadings of mulling spices, sandalwood and toffee. It shows a rich texture on the palate, where the lovely harmony of parts promised in the nose is almost realized, but is held back a bit by the wines youth. The finish is generous, pretty and lingering, with the tannins more or less suppressed by the wines mix of red fruit compote and sweet savory spice flavors. 242 cases made.
Balance and an appetizing sense of restraint combine with quietly complex flavors to make this a distinctive, medium-bodied wine. It has red-cherry and cinnamon aromas, a blend of just-ripe fruit and spice flavors, a firmly tannic texture and lingering finish. 8/1/2016 JIM GORDON
