Fulcrum Floodgate Pinot Noir 2010




Saturated purple in the glass. Dusty aromas of plum, spice, an a hint of graham cracker. Lush flavors of deep dark cherry, plum, cola and spice. Silky creamy texture that is seductive. Unfined and Unfiltered.

Wine EnthusiastThis Pinot tastes young and undeveloped, but it should go places. Evidence of its youth lies in the big tannins and acids and the way the fruit flavors are so fresh and primary. Although it's delicious in berries and currants, it just hasn't pulled together. It's so balanced it should benefit from 4-5 years in a cellar.

Wine SpectatorGraceful, with supple plum and black cherry flavors that show touches of spice and flowers, gaining a black licorice-anise note on the finish. Drink now through 2021. 95 cases made.
