Jules Taylor Pinot Noir 2017
|Region||New Zealand, Marlborough|
Sourced from the Southern Valleys, Jules Taylor's 2017 Pinot Noir offers up smoky notes of grilled plums. It's medium to full-bodied but remarkably supple and fresh at the same time, with additional notes of baking spices and red fruit coming through on the finish.
This vintage shows plump plum and cherry aromas, laced with licorice, damp earth, dried herb, flower and cola. The textured palate sees supple fruit running along an earthy, herbal spine, held together by fine-grained, savory tannins. The oak rears its head particularly on the finish, but overall this is a balanced and finessed wine. Drink now after a short time in a decanter or through 2024.
A fresh green herbal note defines this wine, with sarsaparilla and cola notes mingling with black cherry flavors in the background, set on a firm, dense frame. Drink now through 2031.
