Pinot Noir



Wine Description

(2006 Vintage) "Good dark red with ruby highlights. Piercing aromas of blackberry, raspberry, sandalwood and pungent herbs. Sweet, spicy and downright sexy, with lovely inner-mouth floral lift to complicate the raspberry fruit. Finishes long, with dusty, suave tannins and enticing mineral bite. With its terrific lift and energy, this reminded me of a top grower Beaujolais from the outstanding 2005 vintage." Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar 90 Points

    bright ruby colour. warm red fruit, hint vanilla. note of alcohol but very well balanced. hint of spice. light to medium bodied. red fruit focused and with really good length. might need some time. perfumed and elegant. decant this! as wine improves significantly after 30 mins.
