2007 Pascale Pinot Noir


Ian Cauble, Master Sommelier:

"This wine is delicious. The 2007 Pescadero Creek Pinot Noir is finally reaching its prime drinking range. The color is a very dark ruby core and the wine shows aromatics of just ripened dark strawberry, cherry with some slight earthy components of wet mushrooms and freshly cut beets. The wine is also very floral with aromas of wilted rose petals with a forest floor like character as well. The new oak used on this wine is well integrated at this stage, bringing some anise and toast aromas. On the palate this wine is rich and silky with lots of ripe strawberry and some fresh cranberry flavors with a long finish showing lots of oak spice and earthy tones. In a blind tasting I could see many people thinking this wine was a very good wine from Burgundy. Too bad there are only 25 cases made for the world. Drink now-2020.”


Robert Bath Master Sommelier: 

“Impressive wine.  Done in a big style but with more old world character.  Dark ruby red.  Bright, medium plus concentration with a pinkish red rim.  Medium plus power and alcohol in the nose with earth, sundried tomato, raspberry, cranberry sauce, anise, fennel, and green peppercorn.  Dry and medium to medium full bodied on the palate with flavors of sour cherry, plum, raspberry and hints of new leather.  Savory and chewy at the same time, with medium to medium plus tannins and a medium plus finish.”
