2014 Pinot Noir Bannockburn

2014 Pinot Noir Bannockburn

The nose leads with cinnamon, vanilla and more red fruits than the typical dark cherry from this warmer 2013 vintage. A soft and comforting mouthfeel that is broad and expansive. Being a blend of our three Bannockburn vineyards, this contributes various layers of generous ripe fruits and creamy textural elements. The wine has a pleasant rusticity to the structure adding complexity and depth. Hints of liquorice on the long enveloping finish.

Wine Spectator Insider, MaryAnn Worobiec, June 2016

Bay leaf, juniper and forest floor notes add an intriguing, fresh green edge to the juicy cherry and cranberry flavours, lingering with a note of dried lavender.  Drink now through 2026 93 Points

“Pale ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Bannockburn Pinot Noir has a ripe cherries, red plum and dried lavender scented nose with a waft of dried leaves. Medium-bodied, it offers a good concentration of plush red berry flavours and soft tannins, finishing with a herbal lift. 89 Points
