I really like this.
A mildly musty jam smell, but something else...my mother's homemade borscht!! (I see RPJ mentions beets...)
Probably an idiosyncratic reaction, but it works for me. I'll try it with my mom's borscht when I see her....will make a note.
Note...a NZ bottle with a cork.
Excellent Pinot Noir. Very subtle tannins. A nice light red wine choice. Pairs well with pork tenderloin. Tasted September 2012 and August 2013.
This wine comes across at halfway between the style of a California Pinot and a Burgundy Pinot with the aromas of wild berry fruit, plum jam, clove, cinnamon stick, soft leather and attractive earthy notes. This medium to full bodied Pinot has a velvety smooth mouthfeel with Pinot characteristics good acidity and grainy tannins. The finish is long, smoky, slightly hot (alcohol at 14%) with ultra ripe fruit flavour. Not an elegant Pinot for sure, but very smooth and enjoyable.
