Precious Pinot Noir

Well after what has been a tough week, I thought it was about time I gave myself a little treat, oh and a treat it was.

In the nose you can smell the stoney, turned earth and even hints of oyster shell.The more I swirl, the easier it is to detect the vintage. Ripe almost dried wild strawberries and dried violets. An obvious hint of rich balsamic vinegar.

Who needs food when a wine smells this good?

The tannins are silky and present, one could argue that they are a little dry in nature (but IIMG_0197‘m just being picky). Full rich bodied with a meaty juicy mid palate. The acidity is lively and the fruit is fresh, albeit intense. Red dried cherries with hints of rose and parma violets. Ok so the alcohol is warming, but I like warm, its comforting!
