2012 Walnut City Carlton Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir

2012 Walnut City Carlton Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir


Delicate and sweet floral elements emerge reluctantly in this youthful wine and given a few minutes in the glass, red fruits of pomegranate and raspberry arrive. Light notes of toast and cocoa mingle with the fruits as well and hint that much is still hidden in this youthful wine. Most distinguishing about this wine is the incredible length it currently displays promising a delicious future and it should become much more expressive over the next few years and will cellar wonderfully.
