2016 PINOT NOIR

Impressive structure and concentration. Terrific complexity in the mix here, too. Blueberries and mixed cherries on the nose and palate with a terrific layering of plush, assertive tannins and a fresh, vibrant kick into the finish. Drink or hold. Screw cap.

2016 PINOT NOIR

Even, dark ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter edged. The nose has softly concentrated and deep aromas of ripe dark-red and black cherry and berry fruit entwined with dark herbs and subtle whole bunch stalk suggestions, unfolding dark-red floral perfumes. The nose is firmly packed, but exudes richness. Medium-bodied, the palate has stylishly rich and lusciously sweet flavours of dark-red cherry and berry fruits along with subtle notes of fresh herbs, dark-red florals with nuances of whole bunch stalk elements. The fruit sweetness forms a positive core which is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction with soft acidity lending freshness, enhancing the fruit richness. The wine carries to a long, soft finish. This is a stylishly rich and sweet-fruited Pinot Noir with dark-red cherry and berry fruit with subtle herb and floral notes and fine tannin structure.
