The Hilt Old Guard Pinot Noir 2009 (750ML)
93 WA 92 IWC
"The Hilt’s 2009 Pinot Noir Old Guard is deeper and more overt than the Vanguard. Clean veins of minerality support the fruit as this powerful, intense wine opens up in the glass. This is an impressive Pinot loaded with richness and power. The vineyard sources are 60% Sanford & Benedict and 40% Bien Nacido. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017. The Hilt is a new project headed by Stan Kroenke, Matt Dees and Armand de Maigret, the same team behind Jonata. This strong set of new releases suggests the future is very bright for The Hilt. I also tasted the 2011s, but they are very, very young and still need considerable time to come together. There will be a new Chardonnay in 2011 called Vanguard, which will round out the current lineup to two Chardonnays and two Pinots...93" WA 8/12 "A spicy red berry liqueur suffused nose introduces lush, round and sexy flavors that are not only very forward but possess a silky mouth feel before terminating in a delicious, clean and energetic finish...." BH 10/12 "(this is 60% Sanford & Benedict and 40% Bien Nacido fruit): Dark red. Strikingly fragrant bouquet evokes red berry preserves, incense and smoky Indian spices. Sweet raspberry and cherry flavors show very good depth and impressive energy, with silky tannins coming on late. Gains spiciness on the long, juicy, gently tannic finish, which leaves bright red fruit and cinnamon notes behind. Becomes weightier with air, but maintains freshness and focus. These wines are made by Matt Dees and this project is a spin-off of Jonata, whose owners are infatuated with Burgundy, according to Dees....92" IWC 11/12
