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.
The 2007 Pinot Noir is conservative on the nose with notes of sous-bois and a touch of cigar box. Firm tannins, backward, nice weight on the middle, building towards some lovely pure dark fruits on the sappy finish. This Pinot improves the longer it stays in the mouth so give a year in bottle. Excellent.
