As the climate blends cool and warm in the transition to fall, Pinot Noir is making more frequent appearances at the front of the wine fridge. This offering was one I picked up recently in a clear out at the local LDB, and was worth every penny.
The nose has earthy mushroom with a little bit of raspberry. I really starting crave that rustic, funky start of the Burgundies I’ve had of late. Great to have the palate evolve as I learn a little more. A swirl of the new Riedel Tyrol I picked up (kinda cool) and on to the tongue with some nice floral and tart raspberry and cherry. The finish is more red fruit with nice tartness and some mineral hangin’ around.
A tasty treat!
