WTN: 2010 Robert Stemmler Carneros P.N.

by Jim Grow » Sun Oct 28, 2012 11:26 am

2010 Robert Stemmler Carneros Napa Pinot Noir consumed last nite with pork loin crusted with coriander. This Pinot Noir was very dark purple/black with 14.4 abv but not at all volatile with smokey red raspberry nose and tasted of red raspberries and a touch of mulberry. Very well balanced with great acidity , it probably could have benefited from being decanted a few hours to bring out more nuances but was just poped and poured. I'll drink my remaining 3 bottles over the next couple of years.

Stemmler's still around, huh? I remember visiting the winery eons ago, and learning that Stemmler was a pioneer of sorts with pinot noir--making pinots in the old, old days when everybody else was growing zinfandel and cabernet. The winery might belong to someone else now, of course. Any idea?
