Robert Parker - 99 See more...
The 2008 Pingus is one of the finest that I have tasted. It is closed on the nose at first, broody even, and giving it a few encouraging swirls is akin to awakening a giant. It opens gloriously with small dark cherries, black olives, crushed stone and violet, an underlying minerality that is difficult to ignore. The palate is blessed with a Chateau Margaux-like sense of symmetry that leads to a tensile, precise finish that carries on for a minute in the mouth. This will turn out to be an awesome Pingus. Drink 2018-2040.

Red fruit flavors of cherry and berry are accented with herbal and spicy notes, with crisp acidity balancing the light, firm tannins. Nicely focused.—Non-blind Pingus vertical (January 2012). Drink now through 2018. 465 cases made.

This is so refined and incredible with seamless tannins. Full and reserved. Wonderful length. A beauty. Perfect now.
