Pale purple and ruby hues with a delicate haze. Black cherry crisp, raspberry jam, plum sauce, almond paste, vanilla bean, spearmint, sage, sweet basil, molasses, cardamom, lemongrass, and dried lavender notes on the nose. Tart cherries and herbal influences on the palate. Medium- body and medium acidity. Nicely balanced with a semblance of reserve softening into a juicy ripeness with each encounter. Pairs nicely with herbed pork tenderloin wrapped in prosciutto, roasted butternut squash, and steamed haricots verts.
Vintage 2013. ABV 14.2%.

Pale ruby hue with evidence of garnet. Subtle haziness. Lots of red fruit on the nose - cherry pie, ripe strawberries, cranberries, raspberries, and vanilla, leather, mushroom, dried rose, and cherry blossoms. Refreshingly tart on the palate. Lovely wine. Upon further reflection, perhaps not the *ideal* complement to this particular meal (pan-seared pork chop and creamy three-apple salad), but still very nice. Taste, learn, repeat. #savignylesbeaune #burgundywine #pinotlover #pinotnoir #burgundypremiercru #lesserpentières #patrickjavillier #côtedebeaune #côtedor — a month ago
I find it too sweet and the color is frankly unattractive. It smells like grapefruit and raspberry mixed together with a pinch of volatile acidity. It’s lacking tertiaries and just stays in the happy red fruit range. #pinotnoir #chileanwine #chile — 9 days ago
Ruby hue, medium concentration. Pink rim variation. Baskets full of fresh red fruit, like raspberries, strawberries, and cherries, and baking spice notes, herbal and vegetal influences, and tobacco leaf. A light body and elegant finish. Nicely balanced on the palate with strong fruit character and moderate acidity. 13% ABV. 2017 Vintage. #ponzivineyards #marisa #luisa #sisterlylove #willamettevalley #newworldwine #pinotnoir #pleasepassthepinot — 2 months ago
