Robibero Family Vineyards Pinot Noir 2008
I am a bog fan of the folks at Robibero Vineyards. They are good poeple, and want to make a significant contribution to the valley's reputation for quality wine. Their desire to produce quality wine is a creit to themselves and the valley.
Recently, I had the opportunity to taste their Robibero Pinot Noir 2008. This wine won a Silver Medal at the Hudson Valley Wine & Spirits Competition.
The wine is very pretty with a nice ruby color in the glass. The wine had a nice nose of cherry and vanilla with hints of spice and tealeaf. And the wine delivered, with cherry and plum flavors, with the fruit nice balanced just above the solid but not overpowering acidity, and nice soft tannins. A nice finish with long lasting friuit and good balance.
A nice suprise and a very good wine.
Congrats to the folks at Robibero!
