2002 Old World Winery Pinot Noir Powerhouse Vineyard
Potter Valley, Medocino County, California
WB Rating: 88

Alcohol by volume: 14.0%
Price at time of purchase: $0.00 (from Winery)
Type: Pinot Noir / Burgundy
Principal varietal(s): Pinot Noir

Medium deep ruby color. Lovely nose displays ripe plums and sweet raspberries. Needs a year or so to soften and open up: at present this wine is still somewhat unevolved and tannic in the mouth. It was probably unfair to taste it against the delicious, silky Old World 2001 Windsor Gardens Pinot Noir, one of our favorites. It'll be fun to revisit the Powerhouse in a year or two. - WB exec team 2004-09-17
