This wine is showing a fair bit of rubbery sweaty reduction on the nose. It does blow off partially with time in glass, revealing plush, almost raisiny red-berry fruit, florals, and a sweet oak spice. It's a big step up on the medium-bodied palate, though, where the fruit is surprisingly bright and juicy, woven with fine raspy sappy tannins and a spicy, slightly woody finish.
This succulent Pinot Noir has aromas of spice, currant and dark Ghana chocolate. A juicy cherry mouthfeel matches perfectly with the grippy bitterness of the dark cocoa. A long and luxurious feel on the palate will remind you of your favourite cherry jam colliding with that warm dark cup of black tea.
