Politicians can be so frustrating at times. They don’t seem to be able to make a decision with something that is difficult to deal with for fear of stuffing it up or upsetting their supporters.
Pinot Noir producers are no different…sort of (but they don’t frustrate me like politicians). They have a difficult ‘subject’ to deal with and if treated the right way, the result will prove popular. Muck about with it and you could find yourself being voted to the back bench of Pinot Noir Parliament.
This is a very interesting wine. Aromatically, it’s light on it’s feet like red fruits and cherries but has a darker fruit weight and texture to it. Think black currants and dark cherries on the palate. The tannins are not trying to be difficult here that’s for sure. They may sit in the bleachers of this wine but they have their say at the most appropriate time.
This wine’s winemaker is clearly the Speaker of the House. Maintaining control of the subject matter from its conception to its finalisation, ensuring a positive result for his constituents.
It gets my vote. It should get yours too.
