A perplexing pinot from a warm vintage: fairly deep colour and high alcohol (13.5%), but with modest fruit and bitterness on the palate, along with some trademark Coyote's Run funkiness. Certainly still drinkable, but there is a distinct lack of balance in this wine. Pity.

A funky style Pinot that will only please a certain palate

Description: Light garnet in colour with a medium+ intense nose. This wine features dusty old wood, cherry, barnyard, figs and mushrooms. Medium body with mild tannins, good acidity and a fairly long length.

Negatives: None

Interesting Note: Lightly chill and serve in a Balloon style glassware

Drink now on its own or pair it with Duck Breasts with Port, Fig and Shallot Sauce.

Tasted: 27 April 2016

Score: 8.5/10, Value: 8/10 (Sale: 8.5/10) Total: 16.5/20

Out of 5 stars, I rated this wine: 3.5
