Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar

2009 Five Mountain Pinot Noir:

92 Points “Vivid red. Sexy, expressive bouquet of raspberry and cherry-cola, potpourri and minerals, plus a touch of smokiness. Silky and precise on the palate, with very good depth but no excess fat to its red fruit flavors. Shows very good clarity on the finish, which lingers with suave floral and spice notes. This is drinkable now but has the depth and balance to age.” – Josh Raynolds (July 31, 2011)
