Winemaker's Notes:

As the deep color indicates this wine has beautiful, rich and brooding aromas of leather, plums, coffee and sweet oak. The palate follows with a lovely rich, smooth texture full of ripe red fruits and spicy oak. Although still very youthful it is beautifully balanced and will develop even further in the bottle. A very impressive Martinborough Pinot noir.
My Notes:
