Tasted the 2011

This is an elegant feminine pinot, light but with surprising breadth to the palate. It starts with smoky plums, cherries, violets and rose petals. Stays elegant, silky and smooth through the mid-palate, then adds touches of sour fruit and grip to the finish. A pretty complete Pinot Noir for $25.

Pale in colour, even for a pinot.

Dusty notes on the nose, with traditional (sour) cherry, wild flowers, and light dry earth.

Sour cherry on the palate, wild strawberries, with balanced acid. Austere but with controlled fruit, I`d age with for a few years.

Tasted June 2014.
