Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

2009 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir:

90 Points “Bright red. High-pitched aromas of raspberry, rhubarb and fresh rose, with a touch of sassafras that gains strength with air. Bright and precise on the palate, offering sappy red fruit flavors that give way to a darker cherry quality on the back half. Fine-grained tannins build on the finish, which is gently sweet, focused and nicely persistent. This wine’s balance will allow it to age for at least the mid-term, say five or six years.” – Josh Raynolds (July 31, 2011)

Wine Spectator

2009 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley:

91 Points. Smart Buy! “This fresh red is inviting and invigorating for its juicy black currant, plum and white pepper flavors, playing with zest against polished tannins and lively acidity. Drink now through 2019.” – Harvey Steiman (January 1, 2012)

2009 Pinot Noir Willamette Valley:

“Bright red. Strawberry and raspberry on the scented nose. Light-bodied and lively, with tangy red fruit flavors that could use a bit more heft. Finishes clean and brisk, with good focus and decent persistence.” – Josh Raynolds (July 31, 2011)
