Rather stemmy on the nose with blooming aromas of wild black cherry jam, licorice and violet candies, slight root vegetable notes and a deep medicinal vein. This enters the mouth with a light touch, though there are noticeable tannins here offering early mouthgrab. The flavors are fairly intense, lightly fruity and dominated by stony mineral notes and sweet root vegetable flavors with a finish that is moderately long and brisk with plenty of dusty tannins and flavors of charcoal and old wood accenting the fading red berry fruit. 85pts

Smells smokey and meaty, blackberries and cherries. Really nice flavor, complex.

Very nutty, like peanut butter. Better tasting than it smells, but a bit confusing with such a strong peanut flavor.

Cherry and cola with a bit of grassy flavor

Displays telltale notes of honeysuckle and ripe pear, with peach, orange blossom, and citrus overtones. This wine finishes in a crisp clean style.

Winemaker's Notes:

The average yield is 25 hecto liters per hectare. After “greenharvesting” in June, the grapes are picked in late September when they have reached perfect ripeness. The grapes are de-stemmed (separated from their stalks) and then placed inv ats to macerate for 10 to 15 days. The pumping-over and maturing process ensure that the “best” of the skins are extracted before pressing. Ageing takes place partly in 225-litre barrels, after which the wine is bottled.

Tasting Notes:

This 100% Pinot Noir comes from vineyards set at high altitude, among the coolest part in the region. This fruity wine offers aromas of ripe cherry, wild raspberry and spices. The tannins are silky and the finish is elegant and well-balanced.
