Mature hue with flashes of light ruby in the core but mostly rust. Elegant, earthy, feminine nose of spices (cinammon and nutmeg), red cherries, green plums and a little rose hip backed by some varietal sap/tomato stalk and a nice complimentary touch of oak. Of light- to medium-body, the palate reveals an exemplary silky texture combined with a seductive delicateness only Pinot Noir can deliver. Although lighter in style, there is no lack of intensity in flavour with sappy notes of cherry and plum combining effortlessly with subtle savoury oak, lacy fine tannins, gorgeous ripe acidity and a resolute soft finish. Drinking beautifully now, this wine is fully mature and should be drunk over the next several years. Excellent for what it is.
