Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Lush dark berry fruit with striking floral edges combine on the nose of the 2012 Dagger Pinot Noir to create a fresh yet complex attack on the senses.

Palate

Lifted rich fruit and spice parry along the palate to a finish of fine-grained tannin and bright acidity. Drink young while the edge is keen.

Cellaring

1 - 3 years.

The Label

The dictionary definition of ‘Riposte’ (pronounced rip-posst) is comeback, reply, retort, or in the context of the sport of fencing a quick counter stroke. After over a decade of confusion about his name ‘Riposte’ was chosen as an appropriate name for a ‘comeback label’ by Tim Knappstein.

The Sword Name – ‘Dagger’

A short knifelike weapon with pointed doubleedged blade. It was worn primarily for self protection but some types with long hand guards were used while sword fighting. These were held in the left hand while a sword was wielded with the right.
