Bethel Heights Estate Grown Pinot Noir 2013


SKU 1844233189


Floral black pepper and warm Christmas spice frame red fruit aromas of currant and pomegranate. The palate enjoys volume without heavy weight, and the punchy red fruits carry a savory depth that fill the front, mid, and back palate. The finish is lengthy and high toned, the silky tannins focused by the laser of succulent acidity, suggesting a promising longevity in the cellar. Should evolve beautifully for a decade or more.

Wine SpectatorLight and refreshing, with a savory edge to the dark cherry and floral flavors, finishing on a distinctly mineral note. This has presence and delicacy. Drink now through 2021. 3,420 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastA slight whiff of leathery funk in the nose carries into the palate, but it does not override the rich cherry fruit. Extra details of mineral and earth bring further interest, and more bottle age may serve to lengthen the finish.
