Row Eleven Pinot Noir Vinas 3 2011
Pinot Noirs that taste just right. Row Eleven does not appreciate Pinot Noirs that are too thin or Pinot Noirs that are too over-extracted.
They are a New World wine that finesses back to the Old. They believe their Pinot Noirs are just right.
Row Eleven Pinot Noirs are 100% Pinot Noir. No blenders are added. The nose shows cranberry and smoke, with a very lovely expression of earth. Smooth, full and rich in the mouth, flavors of red fruit are abetted by mocha and a nice minerality. The tannins are nice and round, so there are no jagged edges on the palate. The finish is very fine with hints of candied cranberries and faint oak references.

It, Now! l
Pinot Noir is probably the most frustrating, and at times infuriating, wine grape in the world. However when it is successful, it can produce some of the most sublime wines known to man. This thin-skinned grape which grows in small, tight bunches performs well on well-drained, deepish limestone based subsoils.
