PAPAPIETRO-PERRY PINOT NOIR, PETERS VINEYARD, RUSSIAN RIVER VALLEY 2013
NVWE Notes: The nose of this juicy young Pinot Noir is a rich melange of sweet red cherry, red raspberry, “red vines” licorice, whortleberry, fresh red rose, pink peppercorn, sumac berry and sandalwood scents. On the palate a deep mineral strain underpins and firms the opulent texture and very expressive fruity-savory flavors. Everything lingers seductively, and notes of pink peppercorn, sumac, sweet tobacco and star anise bring contrast to the wines main themes of Maraschino cherry, whortleberry, strawberry, red plum and candied rose. If beautifully food-worthy already, it has some grip and wants at least two more years in the cellar before it starts to deliver all the elegance it promises. 1020 cases produced.
This shows the benefits of smoky oak and savory herb notes, but lets the cherry and currant flavors persist. Complete and compelling.
