Le Pin 1997
Tasting Notes Le Pin 1997
Tasted at Bipin Desai's Le Pin vertical in Los Angeles. The '97 Le Pin has a pleasurable, well-defined nose with raspberry, wild strawberry and cranberry-scented nose
Le Pin's 1997 reveals an excessive amount of oak for the concentration of fruit. The wine possesses sweet currant and cherry fruit, abundant toasty oak, and a seductive style, but the oak is elevated. It will probably not last long enough for the wood to become fully integrated. Or, am I wrong about that? Anticipated maturity: now-2008.
