'The Curly' Pinot Noir 2011

APPEARANCE
Garnet with earthen hues.

BOUQUET
Red fruits are prominent, with dark fruits supporting underneath. Deeper secondary characters of leather, cold cut meats, dried flowers and fresh lavender merge again with positive subtle oak influences of cedar, mocha & vanillin spice.

PALATE
Lithe, energetic red fruits with fine, yet firm oak tannins of high quality cocoa intersect seamlessly with the natural acid backbone to make for a sublime backlit finish. A palate of subtlety and great cohesion.

CELLARING SUGGESTIONS
Subtle at first glance, this is a wine of great persistence on the palate. We recommend decanting a few hours before drinking to unlock its nuances & awaken its great textural profile. We expect to see good development over 5+ years with its peak year well beyond.
