(From 2012 Vintage) Exhibits dark black and blue fruits that drive down the center of the palate and slowly melt into all areas of the mouth. There is focused acidity and a tannic grip that carries the rich dark fruit character towards the midpalate, followed by creamy black cherry, dark plum and dried currants. There is intensity to this wine that is followed by a slow release of complex flavors and textures, leading to a long and lingering finish.
(From 2010 Vintage) Offers a firm, generous mix of dried berry, mineral, cedar and sage, with touches of wilted rose, raspberry and cranberry, ending with fine, detailed tannins.
Lazslo Gyulassy gave me (LGP) a bottle of "Cune Rioja Imperial Gran Reserva 2004" and a bottle of "Kosta Browne Sonoma County Pinot Noir" as a thank you gift for the work done by EAI during his search for Vet Clinic premises.
Incredible Pinot! Amazing fruit. Wish I could drink this every night!
very smooth well structured cherry fruit. yummy!
Very rich & plush without being overly done.
