Rippon 'Tinker's Field' Mature vine Pinot Noir 2010 14%
Vibrant crimson and ruby appearance, youthful pink rim
N: Definitely has an older vine fruit complexity with dense, richer slightly broodier fruits: Raspberry and plum, cherry and brown spices. Plenty of oak - but definitely not centre stage; medium+ complexity.

P: Dry, youthful, complexities building and with 100% pinosity; medium+ fine tannins (fruit + then oak); medium+ acidity with a medium+ finish. A keeper for a decade. Sure you can drink it now and it will reward accordingly - decant first though and be sure to share with good friends. Overall a fantastic wine with great presence and harmony.
5 Stars (90 Points)
