Rippon Emma's Block Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2010 14%
N: A light feminine edge precedes a vibrant package of youthful Pinot Noir fruits - a mix of light red fruits and plum; a layer soil minerals add complexity. Moderate+ judicious oak.
P: A delicious wine. Like other Rippon Pinots Noir it can be enjoyed now, but will also cellar particularly well for another 5 years. Fruit flavors reflect the nose with a medium+ acid and tannin structure; some raunchy oak flavors just add more texture and complexity. A long finish with fine tannins stretching the flavors into a minute or more. Balanced and well made.
