2015 Donum 'Ten Oaks' Pinot Noir, Russian River Valley, USA (750ml)
High-toned contours of red cherry and pomegranate make for a tart profile, edged by tightly wound acidity and underlying freshness. This is an exotic wine that could stand more time in the bottle to truly reveal itself. Enjoy from 2020–2025. Cellar Selection
-Wine Enthusiast, 94 pts.
The 2015 Pinot Noir Ten Oaks is pale to medium ruby-purple in color with a very pretty nose of crushed cranberries, red cherries and pomegranate with suggestions of lavender, rose hips, dusty soil and dried Provence herbs. The palate is medium-bodied, finely crafted, refreshing and elegant, offering fine-grained tannins with a bit of stemmy chew and finishing with lingering earth layers.
-Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, 93 pts.
Though complex and graceful, this avoids excessive weight without sacrificing density, maintaining a fine balance and showing promise for short-term cellaring. Best from 2020 through 2028.
