K&L Notes

I'm pretty sure this is K&L's first "single barrel" exclusive wine! Fromm used the majority of the fruit from thier "Quarters Vineyard" to form the backbone of the 2015 flagship "Cuvee H" Pinot Noir named in honor of long time winemaker Hatch. However one special, distinctive barrel was kept aside for a tiny single vineyard expression destined exclusively for their New Zealand mailing list customers. During my discussions with Fromm about our direct import allocations of their highly sought after 2015 releases I managed to convince them to sell the entire barrel to us (minus a couple cases for thier own cellars and library)! So we ended up with exactly 234 bottles of this delicious wine! It's classic Fromm - balancing wild, brooding fruit with savoury earthy tones. Brambly berry fruits, freshly turned soil, clove and sage. Medium bodied with super fine tannis and a pure, lifted acid line. It's a baby so give it a good decant if drinking before 2020.

    Single Barrel, cask strength Pinot Noir! Not sure if I've ever started a wine review like that before...but yes this is a single barrel wine that we (K&L) bought every available bottle of (234 bottles were left for us after Fromm's own wine making team took some for their own cellars)! Quarters vineyard is an organically farmed block up in the famed Brancott Valley. The soils consist of clay and fine silt giving a softness and generosity to the wines grown here. Bramble fruit, ripe raspberry, sweet wood spice. The palate is medium bodied with beautifully soft silky tannin. The fruit profile is quite exotic, with plenty of energy and flow. Warm earth notes mingle with macerated berries and sandalwood. Eminently drinkable right now with some air but an easy one to lay down for 5-10 should you desire. I'm so happy the folks at Fromm entrusted us with this tiny production, single vineyard wine - Cheers to them!
