MW Bob Campbell, July 2018
Deeply-scented pinot noir with bold plum, dark berry and mixed spice flavours. A seamless, silken texture and impressively concentrated flavours add extra appeal. Delicious now but with cellaring potential

Very attractive red-cherry and strawberry aromas lead to a palate that has a long, elegant and fresh core of lightly smoky red-fruit flavors, cast in fine, helix-like tannins. Drink now. Screw cap.

Winemaker Matt Dicey ferments ten percent of the fruit as whole clusters, an addition still youthfully apparent in the wine’s fir-like spice, even as the flavors and tannins feel easily digestible. There’s refinement and elegance to this wine’s power, an earthy grandeur to contrast its tart cherry and greengage-plum flavors, a complexity that brings you back for another taste.
