2011 Alexana - Pinot Noir Revana Vineyard

Our 2011 Estate Grown Pinot Noir is a delicious, youthful wine exhibiting all of the exuberance of the "Revana Vineyard". Bright red fruit aromas of bing cherry and cranberry give way to complex notes of smoky black tea, violets and coffee grounds. On the palate, blackberries and currants intermingle nicely with subtle flavors of tobacco and anise. The 2011 is a delicately balanced wine that finishes with exceptional clarity and length. This wine will age gracefully for the next 7 - 10 years.

Opened as the cork had started to leak a little bit, this showed a bit more color than expected, a burnt umber bordering on orange as opposed to deep yellow or even light amber. Yet this was showing BEAUTIFULLY, aromatic with apricot, honey, marmalade and toffee, yet on the palate this comes across as light and mouthwatering. This is what dessert wine should be. Ethereal, sweet, yet with such lifting acidity to make each long lasting sip make a precursor to desire for more. Serve with or without food.

Really, really good wine. Super dark with concentrated, but not over-the-top, fruit. Day 2 stepped back a bit but overall a keeper.
