Tinker's Field 'Mature Vine' Pinot Noir 2011 (14%)
A complex bouquet of brambly mineral laden red fruits with plum and wild red cherry, red apple skin and dried herbs, some undergrowth and sweet oak.
On the palate - dry, youthfully firm with medium+ fine tannins and acidity; that said there is a quiet concentration that keeps asking to be noticed with baked and fresh fruits of plum and berry fruits; the soil and brambly undergrowth flavors return as does the oak signature.
The finish is long and fine, but this a wine made for maturation.
Roll forward 24hours - the wine continues to shows its potential.
