From the moment we opened this bottle, we noted aromas of black cherry and red currant alongside secondary notes of spice, earth and strawberry. A big, medium to full bodied Pinot with intense flavours of cherry and spice, without being overpowering. Very smooth, balanced and wonderfully complex amidst so many different descriptors! It’s showing no signs of breaking down and drinking beautifully now…so why wait? www.advinetures.ca
Initial punch of alcohol, which settles down a little over time. Fairly big nose of fruit, but overwhelmed with alcohol. Dry and crisp, with notes of pomegranate and cranberry, which meld into dark cherries. Some bitterness, which are reminiscent of grape seeds, which some people like. Also some pepper. Lingers. Nice long overtones of the cherry.
Smooth and fruity, tasting of blackberries and raisins with just a touch of spice upon opening. I was all set to give it a 90 or better, but it seemed to fall apart as the evening went on and picked up more acidity than perhaps it should.
