Quite rich and ripe, this one has classic pinot notes of dark cherry, strawberry, raspberry, cinnamon, vanilla and forest floor on the nose. It's dry, medium bodied with medium+ acid, medium tannins, and medium+ intensity. On the palate, the flavours replay, with a bit more chocolate and cola coming through. This was really nicely done, especially considering the price, and is a definite crowd pleaser. Tasted January 2014.
Very deep color for a pinot. The nose and palette veer away from the usual cherry/berry fruit spectrum into cola, beetroot and other nuances, so good complexity here. My main complaint is a fairly short finish, with a touch of bitterness. Decent value for the price, but I prefer the delicacy of a classic cool climate pinot.
