New Vinous Pinot Reviews

Seven of Hearts 2014 Pinot Nor Very Special Reserve – 94 pts

(40 percent whole clusters and 40 percent new oak) Brilliant ruby-red. A complex, intensely perfumed bouquet evokes ripe red and blue fruits, Asian spices and incense, and a sexy floral accent gains strength with air. Palate-staining black raspberry, boysenberry and cola flavors are lifted and given spine by a jolt of juicy acidity. Concentrated and powerful, but comes off lithe, featuring excellent focus, sweet, fruity persistence and velvety tannins that make a cameo appearance on the close.
