This is an organically grown pinot. It shows a fairly generous, oak-driven nose of cedar, vanilla and berry-cherry...

The 2013 Bonterra Pinot Noir, aged in French Oak for 10 months; has intensely perfumed aromas (though atypical of Pinots) of red currant, prune, smoke, cigar box and wood on the nose and sour cherry, blueberry, dark chocolate, vanilla and wood on the palate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; with refreshing acidity, subtle to refined tannins and a long and inky finish. It is both food friendly and sipping wine; drink now and for the next 5 years (cork enclosure). My impression: NICE, 89-90 pts – recommended for its quality and value – recommended as a good wine, not due to its trueness to the varietal. Tasted in Apr/15 at 'Bonterra tasting at iYellow Wine Cave' http://grapeselections.com/grapeselections/wine-reviews/.
