Colene Clemens Margo Pinot Noir 2014
Margo, named after Colene’s great granddaughter, is comprised of selected vineyard blocks and barrels; designed to be very approachable, vibrant, and broad on the palate. Lifted and high toned with great vitality, fresh red and dark red fruit mingle on the nose. Supple, refined, and structured, dark cherry and savory notes are the highlight of this transparent, concentrated Pinot noir. Consume this gem now or over the next six to eight years.
Wine AdvocatePale ruby-purple in color, the 2014 Pinot Noir Margo has intense cranberries, Bing cherries and lavender scents with suggestions of fragrant earth, underbrush and game. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a wonderful intensity of savory and red berry flavors supported by fine-grained tannins and great freshness, finishing with satisfying persistence.
Wine EnthusiastFirm and lightly herbal, this has light strawberry-fruit flavors balanced against proportionate tannins and acids. There's nothing wrong here, it's just a light, almost innocuous wine.
