Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
The current release of the 2008 Sherwood Pinot Noir has the makeup to be a real beauty. It possesses a deep dark purple, reddish color along with outstanding fruit purity. Although a bit young and primary this has some serious depth and delineation to its fruit. Bright and vibrant this combines lots of riveting dark cherry, raspberry and loganberry fruit kissed with a touch of spice. What gives this wine so much appeal is its bright, tangy fruit that although quite youthful, has noted persistence and vibrancy in the palate. With a little bit of air time it fleshes out nicely and really shows some impressive fruit intensity. Give this a few more months to come together and then enjoy it for 3-4 years after that. If you try it young decant it to let it open up. It's quite impressive.
"The wonderful 2008 Pinot Noir has a lovely cranberry and raspberry leaf nose with superb definition. The palate is very well crafted with fine tannins, well judged acidity allowing the joyous fruit to really express themselves: raspberry, a touch of blueberry and dark cherry. Given the price, this is exceptional value and comes highly recommended. Bravo!"

Not only does Pinot reign in Burgundy, it is also...Read More About Pinot Noir
