Professional Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92(+?)

Full dark red. Sweet if slightly reduced aromas of brambly black raspberry, cola, mocha and leather. Broad, plush and rich, with dark berry flavors complicated by smoky soil tones, cocoa powder, spices, herbs and espresso. A bit youthfully aggressive and quite backward today, finishing with slightly dry-edged, dusty tannins. But this impressively deep, long pinot showed building sweetness as it opened in the glass and appears to have the stuffing for a graceful evolution in bottle.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 90

A deep, implosive wine, the 2010 Pinot Noir Klopp Ranch is endowed with serious depth and power. Here, too, the fruit is wonderfully pure, but the wine isn't as expressive as it could be. Despite its considerable beauty, the Klopp Ranch comes across as a bit overdone. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2020.

Dark berry, plum and wilted rose notes turn chewy, with a crushed rock minerality. Gains depth and length, with firm tannins.

Dark berry/cherry nose with a hint of mustiness. Well balanced palate with a long finish

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.
