Deep garnet colour.
Grenadine, cinnamon and clove on the nose, with lifted red fruit and pleasant vegetal notes, fragrance one would usually attribute to stem inclusion or whole clusters, but that actually come from intracellular, whole berry fermentation. Powerful but lively on the palate: not a vintage like 2010 which provided more clout; but perhaps a season that allowed more playfulness, and I love it for that. We wine drinkers (and writers) so often seek pure impact; deliciousness and drinkability end up being underrated.

A tank sample due to be bottled within two weeks of my tasting, the 2010 Angel Flower Pinot Noir offers alluring ripe cherry and mulberry aromas over baking spices, lilacs and a touch of honeysuckle. Medium bodied with a medium level of fine-grained tannins, it has medium-high acid and long finish.
