TN: 2005 A.P. Vin Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard

Postby Paul L i n » Mon Aug 26, 2013 10:40 pm

  • 2005 A.P. Vin Pinot Noir Clos Pepe Vineyard - USA, California, Central Coast, Sta. Rita Hills (8/26/2013)
    Begins with an earthy sauvage character, but once it opens up, the wine exhibits delicate notes of rose petals, sour cherries, and strawberries. A bit flat on the midpalate. And a sharp acidity rounds out the finish. Extended aeration, however, strips the wine of its fruit and what's left is a bit too shrill. While I like this wine very much at this stage, and think the cut would work well with some food, I'm not sure this is going to get any better. So my recommendation would be to drink this in the near term. (88 pts.)

Thanks so much for posting Paul!! So great to see you here and sharing your outstanding palate. I haven't had an A.P. in a WHILE! I think it might have been a 05 or 06!
