This release is the 21st release from the Clavin Vineyard. Deep dark red black tinged colour with a dark red hue. Pronounced dark to black cherry, anise and strawberry aromas fill the nostrils complimented by toasty cedar, dried herb, earth and spice notes. Rich dark to black cherry, dark plum and anise flavours carry a fleshy texture across the weighty palate with notions of strawberry, spicy cedar, earth and subtle dried herbs lingering long through the back half. Velvet smooth yet sturdily built tannin structure with a ripe powerful finish.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.
Alc. 13.5%

Other Reviews….
A strong red-cherry nose with a deep sense of complexity that is, for now, tightly buried in this young pinot. There is plenty of spice and earthy sous bois to come with some more time. The pedigree is instantly seen on the palate with an enthralling interplay of power and elegance. Long, fresh and pure cherries and red plums fold through layers of fine tannins. Drink in 2023.

A magnificent offering; the fabulously fragrant bouquet shows dark berry aromas with dried herb, warm spice, flint, almond and floral notes, followed by a impeccably focused palate that offers outstanding weight and depth. It is multi-layered and symphonic, as well as firmly structured, promising to evolve graciously. From the Brancott Valley district. At its best: 2020 to 2030. Certified organic.
