Trisaetum Ribbon Ridge Estate Pinot Noir 2009 1.5L
Wine EnthusiastQuite tight and closed when first opened, this needs to be decanted. Bursting with fruit flavors, particularly strawberry preserves, it brings on interesting citrus complexities (lemon verbena) as well as suggestions of peppery herb and green tea. Seems to gain strength as it rolls across the throat and into a lingering finish.
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Pinot Noir Ribbon Ridge sports a nose of earthy minerals, underbrush, cedar, spice box, and assorted red fruits along with a hint of balsamic. In the glass it exhibits a bit of ripe tannin, spicy flavors, a smooth texture, and moderate length. It is likely to evolve for 1-2 years and provide enjoyment through 2019.
