Rippon 'Jeunesse' Young Vine Pinot Noir 2010 13.3%

Very jeunesse in appearance - ruby throughout with a light pink hued rim
N: Vibrant and very crisp; a youthful bouquet of raspberry and cherry fruits then a layer of oak, some new. I expect this will have more to say on the palate.....

P: Yes - young, juicy, fruity and vibrant; medium+ acidity, fine to medium tannins, a light compote note (nice), medium+ length and moderate complexity. A keep in the cellar example till at least the end of 2014 before you try again.
