Cirq Treehouse Vineyard Pinot Noir 2012

$159.97

  Rare new release from winemaker Michael Browne of Kosta Browne!CIRQ is a single vineyard Russian River Valley Pinot Noir from Michael Browne. Browne is of course the winemaker and co owner of Kosta Browne. The vineyard, known as Treehouse, is farmed by Charlie Chenoweth. Aromatics: Piercing notes of deep cranberry, ripe raspberry, dark cherry and light notes of baking spice.  Flavors: Ripe pomegranate, rhubarb, raspberry and deep cranberry with hints of dark cherry and slight underbrush. Mouth feel: The wine immediately surrounds the tongue and deeply saturates the palate. It's as if a light velvet blanket was thrown onto a bed with thin, soft pillows slowly settling down into each crevasse providing the ultimate comfort. The wine then starts to expand to each side of the mouth slowly disappearing on the distant edges as if it were going to another place but not dying while all along continuing to hold on the mid palate.

Wow. Large and in charge Pinot! Needed a decant. This was so “clean”. Every component shined and worked well together. Red and black fruit medley, cedar, fresh black cherries, potpourri and red currant.

Blackberry jam. Was not expecting that and did not like it at first but was nice when it opened up. Still not as complex as I want it to be

Michael Browne continues to deliver. The second vintage of treehouse Pinot noir is very balanced and has great mouth feel. Won't regret this show.

This has amazing texture and sweet, caressing tannins and sporting brambly fruit, loads of ripe red berries and refreshing acidity. Great overall balance where an expansive mid-palate flows into a powerful finish, drinking well already, but this has structure to age as well. Far from the IPOB style, but damn sexy nevertheless.

Agree with previous comments about blackberry concentration but after 1/2 hr in glass a few softer notes emerge. Powerhouse

Big, ripe, rich. Very 2012... Raspberry coulis, cherry, wet rocks, expansive and persistent. Cool medical notes, spice and chewy.

New a first time for me, nice berry flavors on opening. Initial taste was just ok. Let it sit out 30-40 minutes, big cherry berry fruit emerges in glass , nice mouthfeel, I would personally say maybe it needs more time? I try a lot of Pinot Noir ( my favorites) this is pretty impressive . I have one more bottle. Will try again next year . CB 92+.
