Natalie's Score: 90/100

Satin pleasure unrolls across your mouth, with gorgeous aromas of ripe cherry and violets. Full-bodied with a vibrantly long finish. This wine was aged in French oak for 11 months. A spectacular dinner party wine. Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled salmon with roasted beet salad, quail over pancetta and baby arugula.

After going through extended maceration where it stayed in contact with its skins for about 20 days, the wine is barrel aged entirely in French oak (15% new, 85% 1-3 year old) for 11 months. This vintage may be enjoyed now with its smooth and supple tannins or within 2-3 years while the sweet ripe black cherry characters are still vibrant.

This wine exhibits super bright fruit aromas of pure cherry with a gravelly mineral complexity, savoury spice and lingering fragrance. The supple and steadily balanced cherry flavour runs on layers of fine tannins, finishing long and fresh.
