2006 Pinot Noir

Tasting Date: 28 October 2011

This is a sweet fruited and perfumed wine.  It is bright and pure with a tighter leaner palate.  It is still taught, focused and aging gracefully overall.  However is should be said that being from the hot 2006 vintage, this is not a richly fruited wine and may not be suited for the long haul.  Should be enjoyed over the next few years. 

Tasting Date: October 2008

Deep garnet with purple tints. A nose of plum, dark cherry and herbs with oriental spice. Ripeness drives the palate, no jamminess but a rich, dark compote of black fruit laced with raspberry and chocolate. Ripe, dusty fine tannins complete the finish. The wine will drink well from release but will build in scale and complexity for at least 5 years.

After a lot of thought we have decided not to use Facebook or Twitter. We like longer conversations and for them to be personal not public. If we did it, it would be because it is a fashion and not because our heart is in it and that doesn’t feel right. So please email, or much better come and see us.
