“Deep, dark red colour with tinges of purple and brick-red, showing some forward-development, while the bouquet features hints of mint and tomato-bush. Dark cherries too. The wine is medium to full-bodied and quite gutsy, loaded with tannins that contribute firmness to the structure and grip to the after-palate. A solid, brawny pinot … promises to reward keeping.” – 91 Points, Huon Hooke
