Williams Crossing Pinot Noir 2010

APPEARANCE
Youthful ruby/garnet.

BOUQUET
A ripe yet delicate primary nose of red and black fruits supported by a framework of game meats. Stem driven allspice is present and provides even further ambience.

PALATE
The bouquet faithfully translates through to the palate with the added dimensions of mouth coating acidity and chalky minerality. Elements of meat stock, dark chocolate tannins and fresh earth resonate within it’s youthful frame.

CELLARING SUGGESTIONS
With good tension between ripe fruit and delicate secondary characters we feel this wine, our 8th release under this label, continues to represent outstanding value for the quality delivered. Drink by 2018.

    Mid-garnet; the bouquet is bright and full of red fruits, florals and a well-handled seasoning of spicy French oak; the palate is light-bodied, fresh and focused, showing fine tannins and glimpses of spice and briary complexity in an elegant framework.
