Deep ruby coloration. On the nose, minerals, forest floor, oak, vanilla, leather and cherry. On the palate, cherry, cassis, vanilla, minerals and leather. Long finish of the same. Medium to Full body, rich mouthfeel and strong tannins that are nicely balanced. — 4 months ago

Pas Operé Franciacorta Chardonnay Pinot Nero 2009

Lyle Fass

Gorgeous nose. Floral, cherry, red fruits, lemon, lime, smells like elite Champagne. The Pinot Noir shines through. Palate is a bit broad and all over the map. Good parts, and maybe dosage is also a bit high for my tastes. Meh. Maybe improve with air. Solid but inconsequential. — 8 months ago
