This Pinot Noir is deep crimson red with hints of purple. A rich and complex nose with strong aromas of ripe raspberry and strawberry dominating against a background layer of spicy oak and some savoury/meaty characters that should develop with time in the bottle. The fruit flavours are balanced by a good concentration of fine, soft, silky tannins and enough acidity to give definition to the finish which is long and persistent with lingering ripe fruit. Drinking well now and will develop more complex and savoury characters with some more time in the bottle. It could be cellared for another six to 10 years.
