Description

Planted in 2002 by Californian ex-pat Gary Andrus, the model of the vineyard is clearly Burgundy with 6,000 vines to the hectare. The wine shows this old world sensibility perfectly, the haunting perfumes and distinctly grainy tannins a hallmark of this majestic wine.

Smells

Lovely delicate florals, wild herbs, ripe cherries and cedar.

Tastes

Soft and juicy at first but backed up by a grainy tannic backbone, smoky oak and a solid core of red and black berry fruits, this is very serious Pinot Noir with a long, luscious finish. Superb now, this will drink well for 8 to 10 years at least.
