Pipestone ‘Chateauneuf du Pipe’ Reserve 2006


Medium bodied black cherry, loganberry and blueberry integrated with wet cedar, chalk, cardamom, sumac and almond. Nicely textured, gently massaging the palate with fruit, tannin and soil. A gentle smooth-talker, this. You’ll be comforted by its reverberating coos only to fall prey to its sizable 15% alcohol. A California Rhone-style blend. A very good wine. (Reviewed 11/20/11)
