Medium Ruby with aromas of red fruits, floral and sweet spice. On the palate flavors of raspberry, strawberry and currants with lavender and vanilla notes. Medium tannins with racy acidity, great mouthfeel on a medium finish. Drink now but a bit of bottle age will reward. Tasting Sample.

Reduced nose displaying damp earth and wild mushrooms. Great acidity and firm structure supporting ripe red fruits. Lovely spice character and silky, graceful mid palate. The brightness and aromatic power of this wine is very sensual and somewhat extroverted, but it remains light on its feet with just the right amount of weight. Great example of the region and an excellent value in New World Pinot Noir.

Ripe and spicy with beautiful texture. Oak shows strongly upon first opening but integrates nicely with time.

I am enjoying sampling PN's from different regions...Central Otago offers some nice selections..as always vintage depending...but I have found the 2015's to be quite nice!
This wine is New World in style...damp earth..mushrooms..bing cherry..mild oak...nutmeg..cinnamon...mild acidity..presents with a decent long finish!

Revisiting this post vacuum pumped and put in the fridge...this has opened up even more...enjoying the earthiness of this wine!

Спичечная головка, порох, сверхтонкая рассольная летучка, малина, личи, манго, ежевика, розовый виноград, гвоздика, салат фризе, эстрагон. Среднее тело с фантомной газацией, спелой, тропической органолептикой, мягкой, шелковой кислотностью и тонкими танинами. Фактурно и экспрессивно, в меру глубоко, уже вполне открыто и готово, выраженно новосветски. Чуть не хватает нерва, четкости и структуры. Дело вкуса.

This was my favorite of the three actually. It vaulted the estate wine by being lean, having texture, but not going beyond and entering the syrupy mode.
