2009 St. Innocent "Zenith Vineyard" Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir

SKU #1074801 92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark Warm and spicy scents of beef bones, black tea and redwood fronds support fruit that's all red cherry, all the time. That ripe core of fruit feels clean and assertive; savory notes of ripe tannin cradle the finish, giving the wine a clean line. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2009 Pinot Noir Zenith Vineyard displays darker fruit. Asian spices, incense, plum, and black raspberry aromas set the stage for a structured (for the vintage), potentially complex, spicy, smooth-textured offering that will evolve for 1-2 years and provide optimum drinking from 2012 to 2021. As usual, owner/winemaker Mark Vlossak has turned out a first-class collection of new releases. Inner quote mark (10/2011)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright ruby-red. Smoky red and dark berry aromas are complicated by cola, sassafras and allspice. Juicy, well-focused raspberry and bitter cherry flavors pick up smoke and spice notes in the middle palate, with a spine of zesty acidity providing focus and lift. Finishes with refreshing bitterness and an incisive quality, echoing the red fruit and spice notes. Inner quote mark (8/2011)

89 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Light in texture, with a lovely transparency to the cherry and smoke flavors, with a touch of tannins adding grip to the expressive finish. Drink now through 2017. Inner quote mark (12/2011)
