2010 L'iris Pinot Noir Reserve

$70.00

 


Our Reserve Pinot noir, L'iris, is a wine of grace and depth that exemplifies our commitment to age-worthy wines, while respecting the vineyard’s terroir.  We hand-select our finest blocks of Pinot noir to age in French oak barrels for 18 months.  This elegant wine has a backbone of acidity and a spicy core layered with brambly, earthy notes and a long, rich finish mirroring the nuances of the Pinot noir grape itself.

92 Points Stephen Tanzer - "Vivid ruby-red. Asian spices, black raspberry, vanilla and musky underbrush on the complex nose. Deep but energetic red and dark berry flavors show good intensity and are lifted by zesty acidity. Finishes smoky and very long, with very good clarity and appealing sweetness. Delicious now but has the stuffing to reward aging."(read)
