The essence of a great Pinot noir is the purity of the fruit and structure of the wine. The 2008 Paul Cluver Pinot noir has this
essence which is substantiated by its natural acidity. The color has a luminosity, reminiscent of ripe cherries. The nose is a
combination of red berry with hints of spice, mushrooms and dark chocolate. The palate is packed with flavors linked to the
nose - red berry fruit, hints of spice, and a touch of wood – yet maintaining a well structured, mineral core. Very well balanced,
structured and poised. As elegant as great Pinot noirs tend to be.
