2003 WillaKenzie Estate Pinot Noir Triple Black Slopes

Wine Description

(From 2009 Vintage) "WillaKenzie’s 2009 Pinot Noir Triple Black Slopes is named for four steep, undulating, south-facing and relatively high-elevation slopes, the fruits of whose high-density plantings of Dijon clones 777 and 114 spend 15 months in half new barrels. Abundant, ripe, lightly confitured, vanilla-tinged blackberry, dark cherry, and plum are happily mingled with saline, savory suggestions of roasted meat pan scrapings. There is evident but reasonably find-grained tannin to this rich, broad-shouldered Pinot, and while not particularly nuanced, its finish is strong, long, and – as already intimated – mouthwatering. It ought to hold up well for at least 6-8 years and perhaps will gain further complexity. After a rigorous barrel selection, the net result was around 500 cases, small by estate standards.” - David Schildknecht
