A balancing act between red-tone and dark fruits, the bouquet features notes of strawberry tops, pomegranate, black cherry, baking spices and minerals. Found in the recesses, aromas of cherry pit, vanilla-cream, rose hips and black teas. Medium weight.
The 2016 Estate Pinot Noir unfurls in the glass with a bouquet of wild plum, red cherry, dried flowers and smoky herbs that reveals lovely incipient complexity. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, silky and supple, with an expansive attack, excellent mid-palate depth, and a lingering, tangy finish. This really impresses for its textural seamlessness and stylistic maturity.
Rather light in the glass and shy in aromas at first, this bottling eventually reveals its delicate streak of pomegranate and dried rose petals on the nose. The fresh lightweight palate offers cranberry, pine needle and rosewater flavors, proving subtle, mellow and a great start for this new project on a historic chunk of land.
