Tasting Notes
The 2015 Francis Tannahill Hermit possesses a dark, rich Pinot Noir color that is opaque from rim to the center. When first poured primary aromas redolent of dusty Bing cherries, blueberries, cassis, wet stones and violets jump out of the glass. As the wine opens, more complex aromatics of earth, spices, cinnamon, smoke and tobacco deepen and add complexity to the initial aromas. On the palate the wine mirrors the aromatics with an attack composed of flavors of blue fruits, spices and wet stones. The wine continues with a ripe tannic structure and beautiful acidity to give shape to the concentration of fruit. On the mid-palate the wine blossoms and reveals itself fully with elegance, complexity and density – all hallmarks of the Oregon 2015 vintage. The finish is long, intense and only hints at the complexity to come over the next 10-20 years as the wine ages. Decant and drink now or hold for at least five years for all of the components to harmonize.
