*BerserkerDay Wine* TN: 2008 Holdredge Pinot Noir Bucher

  • 2008 Holdredge Pinot Noir Bucher - USA, California, Sonoma County, Russian River Valley (2/1/2011)
    Decanted for one hour, tasted over a span of three hours. It definitely improved and became more balanced as it opened. Beautiful aroma on this Pinot… gorgeous really – strawberry, wet asphalt/gravel, and a little barnyard hay. Acid noticeably high, body medium, long finish. Palate flavor was mainly strawberry puree with a touch of steminess. Hint of spice near the finish, almost tobasco-like. A bit of caramel/candiness in there as well (very slight).
    I did not pair this wine with food, but imagine it being incredible in a broad spectrum of cuisines. For those who wish to age this wine, I think you will be rewarded. It should only get better. (91 pts.)
