TALISMAN PINOT NOIR WEIR VINEYARD YORKVILLE HIGHLANDS 2012
NVWE Notes: Complex and seemingly steeped in fruit and spice, the nose of this wine offers aromas of ripe Bing cherry, black cherry, Santa Rosa plum, dark boysenberry syrup, red licorice, red rose petal, sumac powder, sandalwood and humidor-spice over a background suggestive of dried flowers and minerals. In the mouth it displays loads of fruit, rich body, fine tannic grip, length and depth in its mix of dark cherry, berry, tobacco, ginger snap, sandalwood, anise, herbal spice, dried flower and mineral flavors. Certainly impressive now, it should be absolutely fascinating if given another three or four years in the cellar. 268 cases produced.
This especially firm and well-structured wine was aged longer than usual in mostly new French barrels. It tastes great now but should improve through 2020. Cranberry and black-tea aromas give way to bold cherry and pomegranate flavors, and a layered texture of fine-grained tannins and good acidity. DATE PUBLISHED 6/1/2016 JIM GORDON
