Deep red color. Fresh aromas of boysenberry, kirsch liqueur and underbrush. Ripe, beautifully balanced, masculine fruit in the mouth with great depth and length and fully-integrated tannins and oak. Not overly complex but very full and enveloping on the palate. This delicious, modern-styled Burgundy was truly a "thrill a sip" wine.
Blind tasting. Very dark hue hue for a pinot. First nose disturbing of animal notes and soya sauce, a bit of coffee. Mouth elegant with some austerity, noble structured as a Bordeaux with ash and dusty minerality. Lacking a bit of flesh. Still elegant. End on subtle green tea flavours. Excellent and complex. A bit on the way down for me. I’m used to more vivid wines.
Very stinky nose with coffee on opening which blew off completely to reveal a classic concentrated Burgundy Pinot: woody, stemmy, cherry and coffee. Beautiful acidity with red berries, coffee, toast and resin. There is still a bit of austerity but this is really singing now. A big Pinot style, perhaps more Sonoma Coast in style but what a remarkable effort for what is not considered to be a great vintage.
Medium dark red. Penetrating nose that is earthy, with herbs and black cherry notes. Midweight palate, more red fruit, tart cherry and mushroom. With air there's a bit of sweetness to the palate. Tight, strucured finiish. Still quite young.
