Cola, bramble, touch of mint. Just the right amount of fleshiness.

Zippy acid, blacker fruit, spicy and savory. Nothing not to like.

Beautiful nose and very nice minerality. Went beautifully with our Peking Duck. Not a great sipping wine but great with food.

Apparently a Pinot doesn't need to have 14 + alcohol to have weight and fruit....lovely!

A well structured Pinot with a cherry, spice character with an attractive vein of minerality. Fresh and long

Full ripeness of cherry fruit with beautiful balance of acid, cardamon, five spice and cedar undertones. Medium body weight. But I'd cellar this for longer term drinking in 5-10 years

Complete Pinot noir. A bit tight but opened after 24 hours. Bright cherry, char (toast) on nose with cran-cherry finish. Well structured and balanced.
