I have a basic rule and more so with good #Pinot and that is...if my wife and I take more than one day to finish the bottle than it ain’t great and if we take more than 2 days, well...it ain’t great either. This is a let down and lately most#southafricanwine is a let down. This gives off ethyl acetate and volatile acidity aromas and that acidity bites as you sip. — 3 years ago
medium aromas simple red fruit (raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant and cranberry) and hints of spice (pepper, cinnamon)
on the palate dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, medium tannins, medium body, medium(-) finish
good. the aromas and flavours are all primary and only of tart red fruit, there is little complexity of aromas. On the palate the wine is tart with high acidity and a lack of rich fruit or sweetness to balance that acidity. The finish leaves sensations of acidity and alcohol. The wine seems simple.
The wine is suitable for bottle ageing. acidity+chewy tannins and medium alcohol and medium color good color extraction and therefore maceration of the #Pinot. — 4 years ago
I’m tasting this alongside old vines Gevrey Chambertin and a Côtes de Nuits Villages from a great winemaker and this rocks. Juicier and sooo balanced! Violets and cherries abound. Could be our #SB expensive house wine for when people in Spain ask what SB wines are like? Good ass #pinot #pinotnoir #sbcounty #santabarbarapinot #santabarbaracounty — 3 years ago
