Bouquet of maraschino cherries, plums, cranberries and cedar. A core of dark cherry, cloves and wild herbs are supported by bright fruit and French oak that complement a rich soft palate with finely integrated fruit tannins.
Reviews & Scores
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with light purple hues on the rim. The nose is up-front and voluminous with open and accessible aromas of vibrant, primary dark red berry, raspberry and cherry fruit lifted by violet florals, unfolding suggestions of dark-red plums, spices and perfumes. Medium-full bodied, the palate has bright, lively primary raspberry and cherry fruit along with violet floral aromatics, and lifted whole berry fermentation suggestions. The fruit is supported by fine-grained, flowery tannin extraction providing a refined, textural mouthfeel. The acidity is balanced and integrated, allowing the fruit and structure to feature. The wine carries to a fine-featured, lingering finish. This is an open and accessible Pinot Noir with vibrant primary fruit flavours of raspberries and cherries with violet floral lift, on a finely structure palate. Match with duck, pork and beef lamb dishes over the next 5 years.
18/20 points, Raymond Chan
