Misha's Vineyard

Misha's Vineyard 'Verismo' Pinot Noir 2009
34% New French Oak (300 litre Hogsheads)
While there is not much of this wine available it is worth a mention as it's a great wine for listing.
Nose and Palate: Fragrant, floral, specific, focused; a raspberry and cherry lifted bouquet with a touch of red apple skin, complex and attention seeking. On the palate - dry with a lovely expression of 'pinosity' and tension then complexity leading to a feminine, floral and gently flavored wine. Fine tannins and lengthy finish. A must buy.
5 Stars (93 Points)
Aparently there is a little of the '08 available as well - I'd contact Misha directly to find out - darker fruit expression with wild thyme, schist and dried herbs, a lengthy finish (4.5 Stars 90 Points)
