K&L Notes

92 points Cameron Douglas MS: "Quite a lush and vibrant bouquet with aromas of fresh cherry and yellow plum, no mistaking a mineral undertone with a stone and dusty rock suggestion; moderate oak with a layer of spice, a floral note of rose. On the palate - varietal, fruity, tense and poised; a youthful example just beginning to integrate; abundant, firm youthful tannins and plenty of acidity. A wine for the cellar still unless decanted. Best drinking from 2018 through 2028."

    Another concentrated and spicy 2015 Pinot Noir from Fromm that has a bit more finesse and nuance than the equally rich La Strada. The fruit is prettier and more feminine in the Fromm Vineyard expression, but the character of the 2015 fruit really comes through with dark bramble fruit and lots of peppery spice. I think these are the flavors that Burgundy fans secretly want, but are afraid to seek out from Down Under! Don't be afraid to admit that New Zealand Pinot can be every bit as good as Gevrey-Chambertin! I got over that fear long ago and I've been drinking happily ever since.

    As always I think this is Fromm's most thought provoking wine. It's full of complexity and detail; its slowly unfurls in the glass giving off different characters with each swirl. A touch more generous and dark fruited than in prior vintages as the yields were so small in 2015. Personally I think that's a good thing as this wine is traditionally quite structured. This has enough flesh and fruit purity to enjoy now but the tannin structure and natural acidity assure me that this will be a 20 year wine for sure. Briary forest berries, smoked meat, cracked pepper, leather. The savory notes give way to more fruit sweetness with air; loganberry, ripe plum. More stony, mineral notes linger on the finish with fine but notable tannin. Serious Pinot Noir - vigorously decant if drinking prior to 2020.
