SKU PaliPNCid09


Dark ruby in color with a lighter rim, the 2009 Cargasacchi Pinot shows a beguiling nose of ripe raspberry, mushroom, Asian spice, rose petal, and brown sugar. The palate leads with sweet raspberry and cherry flavors, evolving to blackberry, anise, and cocoa. Fine tannins and spice notes carry through on a long, mouth-filling finish.

Wine EnthusiastMake this wine a little drier and the score would rise. As things are, it's just too sweet and one-dimensional in jammy raspberries and cherries, while oak brings buttered toast and roasted coconut flavors that are candy sweet. Good as it is, it palls after a while.
