The aroma on this wine I feel is the best of all 3 Pinots Ted creates. On the nose you first get a rush of cherries, raspberry, followed by fresh rose pedals, spice and that RRV earthiness. Talking with Scott's son Kevin, he asked how the wine tasted and I had to admit tasting was the farthest thing from my mind. I wanted to swirl and smell all evening.
The flavor is stunning! Fresh raspberry, cherry, with the spice evident in the middle of the taste. Towards the end a quick hint of the orange peel and finishing with a beautiful earthiness that screams guess where I came from. The fruit/spice is intense yet the wine silky and smooth. I asked Ted what advice he would give someone wanting to make Pinot and to no surprise the answer revolved around the fruit and vineyard. You have a true gift Ted!
Scotty it's 2 for 2 on delicious wines you sent. Thanks I am having a blast. Check out Scott and the gang at Cellars of Sonoma the next time you visit "Beautiful Railroad Square Downtown Santa Rosa California." Pinot lovers I highly recommend you start drinking TR Elliott wines.
