Wine Item Detail
EIEIO & Company 2006 Pinot Noir - Stermer Vineyard
This wine is perfectly Pinot-esque; black cherries crushed underfoot, dried grapevines with a bit of Chanterelle mushroom, fresh pipe tobacco, espresso, clove, vanilla and dark bittersweet chocolate. Adding further to the complex aromas is a citrusy grapefruit, blood orange characteristic and an almost gamey component. Flavors range from fresh and dried black and red currents and plums to espresso, baking spice, Asian spice, and graphite pencil. A seductive layering of silk and fine grained tannins, this wine epitomizes the essential balance between power and elegance. The finish is long and polished with lingering raspberry.
