Irvine & Roberts 2017 Estate Pinot Noir
Our 2017 Estate Pinot Noir is a beautiful expression of our vineyard. Fruit, earth, and floral notes combine to create a dynamic bouquet, and a clear, brilliant mouthfeel defines the palate. Look for bright cranberry and red cherry, dried hibiscus, and wet fir needles on the nose, complemented by orange peel and grated nutmeg. Round and lush yet focused on the palate, the wine has flavors of ripe raspberry, leather, and rooibos tea. An elegant midpalate concludes with a dance to the finish.

The nose entices with lightly dusty plum and cocoa aromas that follow to the palate alongside cranberry and raspberry. Lively acidity lifts it all. Delicious already, this young wine should improve through 2025. PAUL GREGUTT
