2007 Pirouette

Pirouette - Wine Advocate

 "Medium purple in color, it sports an incipiently complex nose of Asian spices, incense, violets, mineral, black currant, and blackberry. This leads to a full-bodied, mouth-filling wine with with ample ripe tannin, excellent balance, and 4-6 years of aging potential."

Pirouette - Stephen Tanzer's Intl. Wine Cellar

 "Good deep red-ruby. Raspberry, licorice and an enticing floral quality on the nose. Lush, smooth and sweet, but with lovely violet lift giving energy to the dark raspberry and cocoa powder flavors. Very broad, generous wine with sexy oak treatment. Finishes with substantial broad tannins and lovely length. Has the guts to age, but there's nothing hard about this beauty today."

Pirouette - Wine Enthusiast

 "Supple and inviting, from the nose of flowers and dark fruits, to the chocolatey tannins that lick the back of the throat, this is a fully-realized, smooth and most accessible red wine."
