Loring Wine Company Durell Vineyard Pinot Noir 2005

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

The 2005 vintage was one of the coolest in the past decade. Yields turned out larger than expected as the clusters kept putting on weight even late into the season - which is very unusal. These two factors combined to create a vintage of lighter style, more elegant, lower alcohol wines. Along with some higher tannins and acid, these wines will probably be some of the longest lived wines we've ever made. Probably 4-5 years of bottle age wouldn't be excessive for these wines, and they made hold up for 6-7 years.

Wine SpectatorFirm, tight and complex, with a mix of wild berry, blackberry, herb, tea and light oak. Very complex and complete, ending with firm tannins. Should age well. Drink now through 2012.
