The 2008 Pinot Noir Grand Detour offers beautiful aromas of smoky herbs, black cherries, forest floor, and plums. With good structure, round, generous flavors, and medium to full body, this stylish Pinot Noir combines elegance with flavor authority. Enjoy it over the next 3-4 years.
Medium red. Raspberry, cherry and cola aromas are complicated by smoky herbs and dried rose. Palate-numbing red fruit flavors are lifted by tangy acidity and pick up a hint of tarragon with air. A bit wound-up today, but finishes with good cut and a lingering note of white pepper. This gained sweetness over a couple of hours, suggesting that I caught it at a youthfully closed point.
