Jules Taylor Wines Pinot Noir 2011 Marlborough 14%
N: Very fragrant with a mix of violet, dark rose, light red berry fruits and a distinctive oak signature. The oak stands apart suggesting a wine still young and integrating. Medium+ complexity.
P: Lovely pure fruit flavours centering on dark and lighter cherry notes, some strawberry mixed with vanillin and spicy oak flavours and textures. Medium+ tannins, both fruit and oak, fine and measured. Medium+ acid. A wine that is quite delicious now and one that will continue to improve for 3-5 years.
