Urlar Pinot Noir 2009 – Hospitality Magazine December 2010

Friday, December 10th, 2010

Wine writer Cameron Douglas includes an Urlar Vineyard Profile in the December edition of the Hospitality Magazine.  See link Thirst10Dec-Urlar.

Cameron also has the following to say about the Urlar Pinot Noir 2009:

“Nose:  A lovely expression of pinot – an iron fist in a velvet glove springs to mind – generous and ripe fruits with both dark and light cherry then a surge of youthful oak and florals followed by whispers of herb.  There is also a terrior note with a ripe soil and mineral aroma.

Palate:  Dry, tight and youthful, a wine to follow and watch mature over the next few years.  The flavours reflect the nose with weighted generosity on the palate and a focus on the fruit flavours mid palate, dusty yet to integrate tannins and quite a long finish.”
