The 2016 Pinot Noir Estate is more closed and reticent aromatically yet has a touch more density and depth, with impressive black cherry, currants, leafy herbs, sassafras, and crushed flowers. With medium to full-bodied richness, ripe, silky tannins, a stacked mid-palate, and a big finish, it's another serious Pinot Noir from this team that will evolve for upwards of a decade. ...

The 2016 Estate Pinot Noir unfurls in the glass with a bouquet of wild plum, red cherry, dried flowers and smoky herbs that reveals lovely incipient complexity. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied, silky and supple, with an expansive attack, excellent mid-palate depth, and a lingering, tangy finish. This really impresses for its textural seamlessness and stylistic maturity.

Rather light in the glass and shy in aromas at first, this bottling eventually reveals its delicate streak of pomegranate and dried rose petals on the nose. The fresh lightweight palate offers cranberry, pine needle and rosewater flavors, proving subtle, mellow and a great start for this new project on a historic chunk of land.

Very attractive aromas of cedar and dried strawberries with hints of caramel, following through to a medium body, fine and polished tannins and a fresh finish. Bright and vivid. Drink now.

Bright red. Mineral-accented red berries cherry pit and rose pastille on the expressive sharply focused nose. Juicy and energetic on the palate offering nicely concentrated raspberry and bitter cherry flavors that show good clarity and spicy lift. Powerful yet lithe with subtle tannins and a lingering suggestion of candied flowers. This graceful Pinot benefits quite a bit from aeration.

green grapes

Varietal: Pinot Noir

Pinot Noir grapes have been cultivated in and around the Burgundy region of France for centuries, where they have long been favored by vintners for their wide range of flavors, their thin skins and for producing wines which have light, smooth tannins, and a beautiful garnet red color Whilst they remain one of the flagship varietals of this special region, their wide popularity and recent status as a fashionable 'romantic' varietal has led to them being planted in almost every wine producing country in the world. However, the Pinot Noir demands a huge amount of care and attention from the wineries that wish to grow it, as this varietal is particularly susceptible to various forms of mildew and rot. Despite this, the grape is otherwise a favorite with wineries for the fact that it requires little extra effort once it begins fermentation. Pinot Noir is also widely known for producing some of the world's most famous sparkling wines, being one of two key grapes for the production of Champagne, and several other sparkling varieties.

Region: California

Since the 18th century, California has been a hugely important and influential wine region, acting as a trailblazer for other New World wine regions and utilizing an important blend of traditional and contemporary practices, methods and techniques relating to their wine production. Split into four key areas – the North Coast, the Central Coast, the South Coast and the Central Valley – Californian wineries make the most of their ideal climate and rich variety of terrains in order to produce a fascinating range of wines made with a long list of different fine grape varietals. Today, the state has almost half a million acres under vine, and is one of the world's largest wine exporters, with Californian wines being drunk and enjoyed all across the globe.

Country: United States

Of all the New World wine countries, perhaps the one which has demonstrated the most flair for producing high quality wines - using a combination of traditional and forward-thinking contemporary methods - has been the United States of America. For the past couple of centuries, the United States has set about transforming much of its suitable land into vast vineyards, capable of supporting a wide variety of world-class grape varietals which thrive on both the Atlantic and the Pacific coastlines. Of course, we immediately think of sun-drenched California in regards to American wines, with its enormous vineyards responsible for the New World's finest examples of Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot based wines, but many other states have taken to viticulture in a big way, with impressive results. Oregon, Washington State and New York have all developed sophisticated and technologically advanced wine cultures of their own, and the output of U.S wineries is increasing each year as more and more people are converted to their produce.
