Professional Reviews For This Wine

Wine Advocate | Rating: 94

Savory herbs, mint, licorice and sweet red cherries emerge from the 2010 Pinot Noir Estate Pastorale Vineyard. A beautifully delineated, mid-weight Pinot, the Pastorale impresses for its fabulous balance and pure personality. The 2010 is bright and focused from start to finish. Savory herbs and floral notes reappear on the finish, adding lift and finesse. It is a lovely showing from Phelps. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.

Good deep red-ruby. Raspberry, pepper and a hint of tobacco on the nose. Rounder and sweeter than the Quarter Moon, and a bit more red fruit in character, with spice and pepper notes lifting the middle palate and perking up the long aftertaste. Deep, seamless pinot noir with lovely balance.

Wine Varietal: Pinot Noir

Notorious for its fickle growing patterns, Pinot Noir vines prefer long, cool growing conditions and tend to mutate easily, leaving behind numerous clones and inconsistent flavor profiles. Although it is one of the three major varieties used in Champagne production, Burgundy is the traditional home of Pinot Noir. The 30-mile stretch of hills known as the Cote d'Or is valued as the world's premier production area. Pinot Noir is planted all over the world. In the United States, Sonoma, the Russian River Valley, Carneros and the Willamette Valley produce top-notch wines from this variety. Other notable countries include New Zealand, Australia, and Chile. Typical descriptors for Pinot Noir include strawberry, raspberry, cherry, mushroom, and meaty notes.
