2010 LaRue Pinot Noir Receives 90pts. From the Wine Advocate
“Katy Wilson’s 2010 Pinot Noir has come together beautifully since I tasted it last year. Juicy, expressive and quite pretty, the 2010 impresses for its solid core of fruit and exceptional balance. Hints of cinnamon, flowers and savory herbs add complexity on the finish. The style is soft, delicate and expressive, with lovely openness in the fruit and a hugely appealing, mid-weight personality. In 2010, the Pinot Noir is sourced exclusively from Rice-Spivak.
Winemaker and proprietor Katy Wilson makes gorgeous, elegant Pinots. Wilson works as associate winemaker at Kamen, with Mark Herold, and has also spent time working with Ross Cobb, another of her mentors. It will be interesting to see where Wilson takes LaRue label over the coming years. Both vintages I have tasted have shown considerable promise.”
