2011 Belle Glos "Clark and Telephone" Pinot Noir
Dark ruby color. Raw fruit juice and phenols on nose. Big, expansive semi-sweet raspberries and black cherries. Some sassafras. The finish is slightly sour with notes of green stems and onion skin. Very faint tannins giving it a somewhat overextracted lushness.
Not nearly as balanced and smooth as the 2008 and lacking the dense sweetness of the 2010's fruit.
89 points but might improve as it integrates provided the green finish doesn't become more prominent.
Ardeis in Seminole
