SKU #1570847 93 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Pretty nose of sliced mushrooms, cranberries, cherries, dried flowers and pink peppercorns. It’s medium-bodied with bright acidity and sleek, fine tannins. Crunchy and vibrant. Lovely red fruit and subtle spice. Drink or hold. Inner quote mark (3/2022)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2019 Pinot Noir A1 is a scented and layered style, offering dark chocolate and dark cherry character with underlying fennel, rose petal and festive spices. This is a mid-weight, reflecting the cooler vintages in its tension and poise. Elegant and supple in the mouth with a corset of tension holding it in focus, the wine's structure builds toward the lengthy and fragrant conclusion. The tannins are very well handled, providing satisfying grip, and, in combination with the fresh acidity, this wine has the structural framework as well as the fruit concentration to evolve from its youthful, current self over the coming decade – maybe more. Who knows? This is only the eighth vintage of this cuvée, so predictions are educated guesswork. Inner quote mark (1/2022)
