Au Bon Climat ‘Larmes de Grappe’ Santa Rita Hills Pinot Noir 2005

Pinot Noir from USA
Review Date : 08-Feb-2017
Moderately dark red with garnet hues. The bouquet is seamless and voluminous with softly deep and concentrated aromas of complex, savoury dark-red berry fruits, plenty of whole bunch, but ripe, and with layers of game. On palate full-bodied, solid and densely packed with layers of savoury and complex red fruits, earth and game, whole bunch stalk. Ripe and with so much detail and layering. The extraction is fine-grained, and there is still a tight core present. Lovely acidity still shows. This has aged remarkably well and is drinking on a plateau. A wine in great condition. From the Sanford and Benedict vineyard, vines planted in 1971. 100% whole bunch, 13.5% alc., aged 18 months in 100% new French oak. 19.0-/20 Feb 2017 RRP $148.00
