2015 J.K. Carriere Vespidae Pinot Noir Willamette Valley USA - 375ml Half Bottle
The wine projects a medium garnet color. Full roses (floral), ripe resinous cherry, caramel, pepper spice and mossy forest laden the nose. After a few minutes it’s almost coffee/toffee in its dark linearity. In the mouth the wine is elegant and intense dark cherry/pomegranate, short of sweet and shy of bitter. The acidity sings vibrantly, yet just a brush of tannin lays it balanced on the palate.
