Issue: Issue 156
(15.7% alcohol): Bright ruby-red. Captivating if somewhat reticent aromas of raspberry, violet, crushed rock and chocolatey oak. Fat, broad and highly concentrated but a bit tight today, with superb energy to the youthful flavors of raspberry coulis, graphite and herbs. This boasts remarkable inner-mouth energy for a pinot at this octane level. Finishes with broad, oak-driven tannins and a surprisingly light touch. Aeration brought an emerging spicecake character.

The finest offering, the 2009 Pinot Noir Joli Coeur possesses shocking density as well as abundant tannin. Hints of fresh porcini mushrooms, bouquet garni, meat juices, black raspberries, cherries and plums are found in this complex yet structured, tannic wine.
