The 2009 de Lancellotti Vineyard Pinot Noir is dark ruby red in color and offers up a potpourri nose of sweet baking spices, red currant, cherry and savory herbs. The intense mouth-feel is also very perfumed and is dominated by red raspberry, cherry and plum flavors and is framed by the vineyard's trademark mouthwatering acidity and suave and silky ripe tannins. This wine is very pretty in nature but dense and brooding at the same time which makes de Lancellotti Vineyard a pleasure to drink young or age for 10 years. Drink 2012-2022.
"A concentrated core of pure, sweet raspberry and cherry fruit is showcased in a wine of remarkable penetration and length. The fruit, from a biodynamic estate vineyard, is perfumed and open, making this immediately accessible and supremely enjoyable. And yet cellaring will surely reward those with the patience and discipline to lay it down for up to a decade. Cellar Selection."
"Vivid ruby. Intensely perfumed nose offers black raspberry, cherry compote and candied licorice. Vanilla and cola nuances add an exotic quality to sappy red and dark berry flavors, with tangy acidity providing lift. Closes on a bright, spicy note, with lingering sweetness and excellent tenacity."
