J.B.M. Sorrel "Le Vignon" Hermitage 2000 Wine Review (NW)

Fragrant nose
Silky, juicy palate and nice overall texture
Sour cherry finish

This wine has really nice texture, but is a little odd. It doesn't seem to all come together. Not only is it somewhat disjointed, the sour finish never developed any richness. This is not a ripe style of wine, of course, and maybe it could benefit from more bottle age. Fortunately, this was not on my dollar as we paid $100 for the bottle at a nice bistro. Hermitage is generally world-class wine, but this one is hard for me to figure out. If you're not paying, raise a glass!
