Red Hill Estate Pinot Noir 2013

Garnet in color with a mild rustic nose. On the mid palate the wine displays some lovely rustic notes to match the nose along with some soft red berries. On the medium length finish the wine has some lovely dryness, smooth tannins, crisp acidity and a hint of pepper. The rustic notes linger nicely in the mouth. A very nice bigger pinot. Washington are doing some great stuff and this is one of them. I would give it an 89. Yumm

Style – Medium-bodied & Fruity  ›

The Mornington perfume, distinct, ethereal, lifted, elevated, fresh with a bit sauvage, not of musk, but of a wild road less trodden. A step beyond fresh, into learned territory and also above crisp, into crunchy. Very interesting and complex Pinot Noir, so obvious as anything but, yet unique, tart, striking and long. This should have many consumer fans and expand horizons for broad appeal, but also be a friend to the discerning taster. Most impressive. Score – 90.
