Brett Rogosin

Consistently good, holding up well with time in the bottle, and still has time to develop more, but very quaffable now if you still want good fruit. The nose has some umami, damp wood, wet leaves from morning dew, and white pepper. The palate oozes with raspberries, raspberry seeds and tart pomegranate. Tannins are almost gone, but acidity is still present. Good stuff. Holds up after 3 days.

Easy drinking. Tart flavors of strawberry, rhubarb and raspberry with a slight dusty quality.

Lighter with a bit of spice and tart cherry taste.

Superb Pinot. Juicy, plump with cherry, yet smooth & elegant. Finish lasts wonderfully.
