There is plenty of menthol influence to the equally toasty aromas of red and dark currant where a hint of mocha is present. The exceptionally rich, round and delicious seductively textured medium-bodied flavors coat the palate on the sneaky long finish where the same bitter pit fruit character gradually emerges. Drink 2028+, 89-92 Points, Allen Meadows, Burghound.
French Burgundy is the varietal prototype pinot noir makers follow. In this youngster, strawberry, game and foresty aromas introduce a generous mouthful, seamless, silky and rich. Drink over eight years. Ralph Kyte-Powell, SMH Good Food.
