Pretty ruby colour. Initial funky nose recedes to reveal cherry and red berry fruit aromas, spice and smoke. There's a chalky minerality on the medium plus bodied palate with more red berry and plum fruit and spice. Oak is nicely integratged and medium/high acidity and grippy tannins provide good structure. Excellent length. A touch hot on the finish, but still, a high quality Pinot. June 2015.

Pretty ruby red cherry, raspberry, strawberry and vanillan oak aromas of medium intensity. On the palate, it's medium-bodied with pleasing aroma replays plus chocolate on the flavour profile. Good, balanced acidity. Medium+ level tannins and finishing long, this should be enjoyed now or over the next 3-4 years. Tasted May/2015

A perfectly typed and quite delicious PN. Drinking beautifully now, but lots of time yet.
