Talon Ridge, debuted

2006 Le Clos Jordanne

Fantastic release, the first in a long while. The debut of Le Clos Jordanne, Talon Ridge vineyard pinot noir. I'm extremely happy to see this vineyard being bottled separately. I had heard whisperings of something like this happening, especially for the blockbuster 2007 Ontario vintage. Talon Ridge is so large that there must be distinct parcels, and this should be interesting.

If I remember correctly though, this wine is so dense, so concentrated, so inky, that it won't approach drinkability for at least 7-10 years. Talon Ridge is also known for being one of the more tannic vineyards in Le Clos Jordanne's portfolio, so its evolution will be very interesting to track.

Will I be so patient?
