Single Bottle - Standard - 750ml
Fragrant and robust, this red combines power and finesse, with an overwhelming amount of detail. Flavors of black pepper, mahogany, hops, sandalwood, blackberry and plum are joined by accents of Earl Grey tea, cedar and baking spices. The tannins have plenty of muscle, but there's an amazing sense of harmony and polish on the long, intricate finish. Drink now through 2033. 250 cases made, 50 cases imported.
Mainly picked between the two serious rains that fell on Martinborough during the vintage, the 2017 Pinot Noir is a medium-bodied, firm wine. Herbal notes accent plum and cherry fruit in a wine that's still structured and concentrated despite the challenges of the year.
This has a very rich, ripe and attractive feel with innate depth that arrives by means of the region, experience and methods in play here. The dark and red cherries and plums are beautifully fresh and vibrant and framed in earthy, sappy notes that add complexity. The palate is intense yet plush. The rich dark cherries are cleverly captured and wrapped in reassuringly long, smooth tannins. Lots to like here! Drink or hold. Screw cap.
