Nearly brown garnet. Strawberry, fresh leather, and baking spice nose. Medium to full bodied, pomegranates, pepper, bing cherries, well integrated rounded tannins, good acid, mint, a bit of heat, and a long red fruited finish. Superb, especially on night 2. Lots of life left in this one.
Medium red-violet color. Fresh raspberry coulis nose, touch of celeriac, black peppercorn and French oak spice. On arrival, smooth and low tannin, with balanced acidity; harmonious, fat, ready. Delicious and deliciosly easy drinking, this gets better with aeration hour by hour. Kent's estate Pinots might be the best "least known" top pinot noir every year. Bottle #6 of six.
Glad I held on to a couple of bottles; the cellar time has been very good to this wine. Same tart cherry, but softer, yet retaining the flourish into the finish. As before, very food friendly but was better on its own than previous bottles.
