The 2018 Pinot Noir is magnificent. Rich, deep and powerful, with tremendous resonance, the 2018 is positively stellar. A range of floral and savory notes develop in the glass, adding myriad layers of nuance in a Pinot that marries intensity with translucence. Sweet dark cherry, mint, sage, rose petal and blood orange build into the stunning finish. The 2018 is one of the very finest wines I have tasted from Mindego Ridge.
