Fruit appears a bit hidden at first nosing, but after some time in glass opens up. Austere, damp earth, red currants, sage and a hint of bacon.

On the palate, bing cherries with a tart undertone. A bit more oak than many PN, but higher acid holds this together nicely. Tart medium-length finish, most definitely a food wine.

Has enough structure to hold up to lighter grilled dishes, such as chicken and grilled vegetables. Perfect with a mushroom risotto.

Tasted May 2014.

Retasted July 2015: re-rated to 91. An extra year of aging has added depth and balance.
