Expert Reviews

Produced using a small amount of whole bunches (5%) and a wild fermentation, the 2013 Pinot Noir offers a pale to medium ruby-purple color and beautiful perfume of ripe cherries, black raspberries and roses with underlying dark chocolate and cinnamon hints. Medium-bodied with tons of red berry and baking spice flavors, it has a medium level of silky tannins and a long complex finish. The best, most promising Amisfield Pinot I’ve tasted, this wine is to be released in 2 years. ,b>Rating 92+ - Drink by 2020, Lisa Perrotti-Brown, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (DEC/2014).

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

A wine expressive of its vintage with restrained fruit presence and delicate silky tannins underpinned with a vibrant acidity. The aromas of bright red fruit and hints of Christmas cake spice is alluring and measured against its persuasive length on the palate.

Cellaring Potential
