The Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir opens to deep carmine color. The bouquet and flavors evoke impression of black cherries, purple plums, blackberries and raspberries. Beneath these is a savory underlay of black olives, licorice, grilled mushrooms and prosciutto. There is a dense core of ripe fruit which is coated with fine-grained, velvety tannins. It is robust, but refined and savory/spicy overtones linger after the finish.
"So perfumed with sliced strawberry and opens to dark fruits such as raspberries and stems. Full body, with intense structure. Hints of tea. Extremely tight and closed in. Screw cap."
"Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2010 Pinot Noir has a fragrant nose of ripe black cherries, black raspberries and violets with nuances of underbrush, nutmeg and powdered cinnamon. Medium-bodied, it gives a great intensity of red berry and spice flavors in the mouth with a medium level of finely grained tannins and crisp acid to support, finishing long and layered."
The Wine Advocate
"Bright medium red. Enticing aromas of raspberry and smoke. Sweet, supple and concentrated, offering impressive fruit intensity and volume, with underlying minerality contributing to the impression of flavor definition. Finishes very long, with noble tannins. Really lovely fruit here."
