2009 Pinot Noir Cornish Point

Tasting Date: 20 January 2015

The earthy entry is bright and focussed with defined notes of red-berry and briar.  An aromatic precision juxtaposed with refined, mouth-coating opulence and bitter-sweet promise of fruitcake, rich coffee and mocha.  Ripe tannins are long and lingering, underpinning the impressive dark chocolate finish.

Tasting Date: May 2010

As we so often see with Cornish Point, the nose starts with spice and florals: the classic violets, dark rose petals, hints of cinnamon. The palate is voluptuous dark fruit, with a gorgeous open texture, welcoming rather than brooding. The spices dance through the palate with the chunky structure only emerging in the finish of the wine, showing its considerable ageing potential. A classic Cornish Point.
