Other Reviews....
It’s from the estate’s 1992 planting, aka its oldest vines. It was fermented wild before going into 27% new oak.
This takes the tannin up another notch; I was bowled over by this, it’s a terrific wine. Meaty, smoky, plum-shot, silken, cedar-laced. But bold with tannin. Muscular in a nuanced way. The ‘standard’ Curly Flat pinot noir grew on me over the hours; this one hit me with its quality immediately. You can see the grains in this and I mean that as a positive; it’s like an LP, analog, grainy, its flavours told in grooves. Drink 2022 - 2028+
