TN's: 08 Chanin Bien Nacido Pinot Noir

Postby Phil_Carpenter » Fri Dec 30, 2011 3:50 pm

Been wanting to try this wine for a long time. Hope to chase Gavin down one of these days. He's got to be super busy after all the recent press!

12.9% alc beauty...light garnet. Initial pop, grilled meats and mint. After a few minutes, some loam and fresh cut pork. Underlying fresh red fruit. Soft red fruit with a nice acid streak. Good mineral here. Touch of smoke and purple flowers on finish. Under 13%?! Crazy weight/acid ratio!!

Evolving more and more...will post more!
