From mag. Pop and pour. A thrilling murky dark garnet with bricking. On the nose: beautiful notes of some cherry, cloves, funky mushrooms, smoke, touch of mint. Taste: velvety smooth, nuanced, delicious wine with some dried cherry/plum, leather, black tea, minerals and a smokey spiced vanilla oak medium plus finish. YUM! — 7 months ago
Happy New Year Delectable!
It's a pinot noir new year (Clos De La Roche, Donum west slope pinot, Schramsberg blanc de noir) with an oven roasted chicken dinner!
Double decant and pour the Clos de la Roche. A formidable medium ruby red color. On the nose: spicy cherry, forest floor, slight menthol, raspberry, mushrooms. Taste: smooth, creamy, lush, structured wine with cherry, gamey, minerals, and a spiced strawberry medium plus dry still some tannins kicking finish. Nice start to the night. Cheers! — 2 years ago
Dark fruit but has mellowed over the years or “softened “ definite tobacco and licorice hints and great earth tones but time to drink IMO! — 8 months ago
Carneros Pinot. Sweet fruit nose. Medium high tannin/acid.
Nice finish — 2 years ago
Donum, magnum, 2012 is a limited edition produced from their three finest blocks; once and only bottle named the “1870.” A nice ruby red with definite signs of bricking giving it an amber like color. Cherry-raspberry fruit jumps from the glass with scents of floral, spice, a pine forest floor, vanilla and sandal-wood cedar with a lingering smokiness at the end giving the pinot a well rounded nose. Taste - cherry, blackberry and raspberry fruit flavors, pepper and tea spices with subtle anise and a licorice earthy medium finish. Tannins are still present but blended. Be interesting to see how it opens up throughout the evening. — 3 years ago
