Wine & Spirits(From 2005 Vintage) Irsquo;ve tasted this wine five times over the past two years and without a doubt, this formerly tannic and introverted wine has bloomed into an ultra-fragrant, silky and deep Pinot Noir. The nose is open with an expressive perfume of blackberries. Seductive aromas are backed up with a silky, caressing texture that coats the palate with raspberry liqueur, plum skin, minerality (slate) and fresh juicy cherries. Beautifully pure, unfiltered fruit provides extraordinary freshness of flavor while the density of the wine extends the finish for a full minute. I have served this wine on two separate read more...occasions over the past month to a dozen or so guests. Without any input from me, my guests unanimously chose Hamacher rsquo;02 as the star of the evening. Drink now or hold for another 3ndash;5 years. (hide)
