A firm and silky red with pretty tension and texture. Medium-bodied, tight and delicious. Racy and refined. Dried berries, bark and tea. Pretty wine.
Brilliant red. Vibrant mineral- and spice-accented aromas of fresh red berries and fresh rose, with a hint of incense building with air. Boasts excellent clarity and lift, with sappy strawberry and floral pastille flavors joined by a suave hint of spicecake. Finishes long and sweet, with supple tannins and emphatic floral persistence. Here's 2013 at its best, offering a suave blend of power, concentration and vivacity. (JR)
Bright and peppery, with a spicy cast to the cherry and coffee flavors, remaining velvety and focused through the deft finish. Has presence and depth. (HS)
The 2013 Pinot Noir Laurene is a barrel selection, although it usually comes from the usual blocks. Matured in around 20% new French oak, it has a lifted bouquet with redcurrant and cranberry scents that seem quite pure and lively. The palate is medium-bodied with slightly chewy tannin on the entry, cranberry and strawberry fruit here tinctured by a slight earthiness towards the structured finish. Give this a couple of years in bottle. (NM)
