This wine has reached a stage of early maturity, and has transformed into a lush, velvet-textured wine of deep complexity. The palate is ultra-smooth, very broad, with endless layers of dark fruit that is shot through with red fruit highlights. The flavors keep expanding on the palate through a nearly endless finish. It's pure silk, and thrilling to drink.  There's still a touch of structure left, but this a highly desirable wine to consume now or over the next 5-10 years. 

From the winery: "The Appassionata bottling is a special selection of a few extraordinary barrels of Pinot Noir, aged and released only when winemakers Jay and Ernst Loosen believe it is ready to drink. This cuvée is dense and powerful with continued structure, yet retains an Old World elegance and finesse. It shows off the magic transformation that only comes from bottle age. The 2008 is a very heralded vintage and the fourth release of the Appassionata. Only 240 6-packs were produced from three barrels of Abbey Ridge Vineyard and two barrels of Bella Vida Vineyard."
