Northwest Palate

2005 Mount Richmond Pinot Noir:

Three Clusters. “Powerful, juicy aromas of cherry fruit surge from the glass. Fresh and focused black cherry flavor is dense, fruit-sweet and succulent, and layered with notes of spice, toast, cola and espresso. Yet for all its weight of flavors, this is a vibrant wine whose balance of acid and remarkably subtle tannins make for a long and elegant taste experience. While a definite cellar candidate, this wine’s polish makes it well worth drinking right now…” (February 28, 2007)
