07 Marimar La Masia Pinot Noir ($40) ☺☺

The 07 vintage was a classic, and has produced some excellent wines. Marimar (Torres) has always produced high quality wines and this offering continues that quality trend. When initially opened the wine was black cherry on the nose with a hint of mocha. When you taste the wine just after opening there is signs of the great structure to the wine, acid and tannin still in proportion but mellowing and within about 30 minutes in the decanter the wine had opened up nicely. I feel this wine will benefit form more aging and should last the distance with patience being rewarded.
