    Wild strawberry and plum mix with subtle yet sultry notes of nutmeg, mace, loam, graphite and game on the nose of this bottling. Sizzling acidity leads the palate, carrying cherry, plum and red apple flavors, followed by layers of eucalyptus and pine forest.

    The 2014 Pinot Noir Estate from Mount Eden is beautiful, wafting from the glass with aromas of red cherries, potpourri, mountain laurel, forest floor and cinnamon. On the palate, it's medium-bodied, ample and layered, with velvety tannins, succulent acids and lovely length and grain on the tangy finish. Follow this young classic for the next 15 years.

    Seeing one-third whole clusters and 12 months in barrel, the 2014 Pinot Noir Estate has a subtle, nuanced style as well as terrific notes of dried strawberries, red currants, spice-box and forest floor. It's elegant, seamless and silky on the palate, with fine tannin and impeccable balance. Give it a few years to develop more complexity (although I'd happily drink it today) and it's going to keep for 10-15+ years.

    The lively, spicy, oaky nose has aromas of coffee and vanilla countered by rich, vibrant red fruits and a rose petal note. The palate displays flair and lift despite its concentration, with plenty of grip without any astringency. Floral, polished and long.
