Lawson's Dry Hills Pinot Noir 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Black cherry and spicy oak are prominent on the nose with dark berry and vanilla notes providing complexity. The palate is soft and round with silky tannins and gentle acidity. As on the nose, cherry and berry fruits are matched with vanilla and spice along with hints of coffee and smoke flavours from the maturation in French oak.
