18.5+/20 | Raymond Chan: The bouquet is softly concentrated with fragrant, ripe, dark red berry fruit and red plums, entwined with toasty oak, dark herbs and subtle reductive nuances. The aromatics are subtly detailed and seamlessly interwoven, somewhat restrained initially, but opening with aeration. Medium-bodied and elegantly presented, a refined and tight core of black cherry and dark red berry fruit intermixed with liquorice, dark herbs, toasty oak and a touch of reduction is the feature on the palate. The fruit is underlined by fine-grained, flowery tannins forming a refined mouthfeel and structure. The wine flows with good energy and some acid tension, carrying through to a dry, fine-textured, lingering finish. This is an elegant and refined Pinot Noir with concentrated black fruits and subtle complexities. Match with pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 6-7+ years.
