Roar Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009




Purple/black in color with a reticent but powerful nose of rose petals, figs, sassafras, and black cherry. The mouthfeel is dense with plums, anise, toasted oak and the finish is very long with moderate tannins.

Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Pinot Noir Pisoni bursts from the glass with layers of exotic dark red and black fruit, menthol, spices and new leather. The Pisoni shows gorgeous balance between the elegant and powerful elements of Pinot Noir. Dark cherries, spices, licorice and a melange of balsamic aromas and flavors are beautifully layered on the long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2019.
