2017 Vincenzo Pinot Noir
This first release of a new Pinot Noir line from our Dundee estate, the 2017 Vincenzo delivers aromas of plum, violet, and cinnamon spice which carry over to the palate. From there, it will open-up to more complex flavors of Bing cherry, herbal tea, and cedar. The wine is nicely structured, with a moderate acidity and a seamless integration. This wine will continue to improve with age, and we encourage cellaring for a couple more years for our Vincenzo to reach its full potential. We recommend decanting before serving if opened in its youth. This wine will find its perfect companion in the pairing of roasted duck in a peppercorn reduction.
"This has attractive purity and definition on both the nose and palate with red fruit that’s framed in light spices and rose-like perfume. The palate is neatly defined and delivers a fresh array of red cherries. Good poise here. Drink or hold." 93pts - JamesSuckling.com
"This is the first vintage of this wine, made with some new Taransault barrels. Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Pinot Noir Vincenzo is scented of fresh cranberries, red currants, blackberries and blueberries with notes of blue flowers, citrus peel, woodsmoke and an earthy undercurrent. Medium-bodied and silky, it offers ripe, nuanced fruits with finely grained tannins and a long, juicy finish. Give this another year or two in bottle." 92pts - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
