Zio Tony Ranch “Grace Nicole” Pinot Noir 2010


The Wine Advocate




Dark cherries, menthol and cloves are some of the notes that emerge over time. The Zio Tony remains exotic and beguiling throughout, with an element of mystery to it, as it is clear the wine isn't showing all of its cards. Layers of flavor continue to build all the way through to the huge, enveloping finish. The Zio Tony is the biggest and richest of these 2010 Pinots. Today it is towering and also a bit of a brute. It will be interesting to see what further time in bottle brings. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2030.
