The Pinot Noir Vertical Taste-off!

photo (103)Tuesday night, November 18th, the wine tasters of convened, to take part in a blind vertical tasting of Sokol Blosser Winery’s, Dundee Hills, Pinot Noirs.  There were five vintages involved in this Pinot Noir tasting; vintage 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, & 2010.

One of our tasters found, purchased and shared a 2002 vintage of the Sokol Blosser, Dundee Hills Pinot Noir.

We were all pleasantly surprised, and maybe a little shocked,  with the amazing outcome of the tasting.  All the wines were quite stable, with a reasonable amount of acid and tannin.  The colors were beautiful.  There were a wide range of flavors and aromas to deal with as well.

When the final results were discussed, the three standout wines were vintage 2010, 2008 and 2007.  The other vintages were not far behind and there were no losers.  Nice job Sokol Blosser!
