"Medium red. Smokey cherry and dark berry aromas, with deeper licorice and sassafras qualities adding complexity. Silky black raspberry and cherry compote flavours are broad and sweet, with musky herbs gaining strength with air. Finishes with a hint of sweet maple and gentle lift." Stephen Tanzer's Intertiol Wine Cellar (Global), September 2008
Winery Tasting Notes
Deep colour and youthful purple tints evident.
Great complexity to the aromas. Lifted dark cherry, dark chocolate over sweet earthy characters. Some vanillin oak in the background.
As expected at 14.0% alcohol a full-bodied palate but the richness of the fruit more than compensates. Dark fruit and brandied pudding flavours. The balance is aided by ripe tannins and a lingering finish.
This will mature further, although enjoyable as a rich young Pinot Noir.
A robust looking Pinot Noir - not a pale, light dry red one!
