Popped and poured tonight with sushi of all things at Tsukasa…just because we can! We were craving a big, fruit forward pinot noir tonight, and we have a ton of the ’06 Kosta Browne’s in the cellar, so why not as I am trying to drink through the entire lineup by the end of the year, just to say we have had one of each.
On the palate, to me, this wine still seems young. Call me crazy, but I think this wine is still going to get better. More cherry and cola on the palate, with a nice berry medley as well. There is definitely some alcohol here that still needs to integrate, but it is not overpowering in the least. I'd give it another year or so, and it will integrate nicely. Nice spice though, with some hints of cinnamon and tea. The shining star however on the palate is the cherry, and that is not a bad thing in the least.
Nice pleasant finish, but again, the alcohol just needs a bit of time to integrate. Even so, this was delicious with all kinds of fruit oozing from everywhere. Gotta love fruit from Kanzler! 92 points!
