Black Estate

Black Estate 'Damsteep' Pinot Noir 2013 Waipara Valley
Lifted and complex bouquet of red cherry fruits laced with a savory mineral complexity - keep swirling the glass - as the wine begins to open it reveals more layers of complexity with specific oak spices and toasty woody-ness some clove and old wood nuance. On the palate - dry, quite firm with abundant fine tannins and medium+ acidity; layers of fruit and oak spice then light red fruit flavors. Mineral silty soil moments and a lengthy finish destined to start a discussion on Pinot Noir. 
90 Points
