Lee Pitofsky Delectable Pro

Complex, expressive and finessed, showing both black and red berries, black tea leaves, damp earth, hints of rosemary and minerals. The finish is quite long and very balanced showing it’s beauty and elegance.

Chopped cherry tree nose leads a seamless, light red fruit-driven core, very low acidity. Pomegranate, bing cherry. Burg meets old Barbaresco, not like any cab franc I’ve tasted.

Update: This was great upon opening, but it’s absolutely brilliant day-two.

Not a great showing. Some oak notes meet a thin palate and intense tannins. Might just need more time, but not my favorite vintage of this bottling.

Funky, green pepper, leafy, cool raspberry fruit, damp autumn leaves. Airy and almost weightless. Sappy tannins with relatively long finish. An unusual Cabernet Franc, but I can see why Burgundy lovers would make an exception for this producer. Would consider buying if prices were more reasonable.

Not especially complex but so smooth and silky -- pleasant cherry / red fruit aromatics (almost burg like) well structured

Always over-delivering. Fresh off the boat, less than a month in the states and ready to go.
