Tasting notes


<li> an elegant, powerful wine <li> keep for a couple of years<br><br> This sensational Pinot Noir is a reminder that the Santa Cruz region should never be overlooked. Picked in early October, the grapes were hand sorted and destemmed. After a three-day


Deep ruby wine shows lovely black cherry, raspberry, cocoa and spice aromas. On the palate elegant for its rather larger size, but smooth and lively. Youthful flavours of cherry, cinnamon and a touch of earthiness work together seamlessly. Drink 2003-2004
