Opaque dark red colour with black tinged edges and a dark red hue. A complex mix of sour right through to dark cherry, violet and winter strawberry scents greet the nostrils with plum, anise, forest floor, fresh herb and spicy cedar notes also evident. Light in body with a supple mid palate feel, expressive flavours of sour cherries, dark cherries and winter strawberries overlay earth, fresh herbs and spicy cedar. Dryish finish with bright acidity and slightly chalky tannins. Good power with a medium to long aftertaste.

Other Reviews....
This is such profoundly complex pinot with violets, dark cherries, plums, blueberries, graphite, black tea, peppery nuances, licorice and woody spices, all taking a role on the nose. The palate has such density and precision, delivering a powerfully composed and profoundly concentrated core of blueberry and dark-cherry flavor in a layered and refined style. Such impressive depth and character. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
