With plenty of rose-like perfumed aromas, this pinot is bursting with perfume, citrus peel, some sappy notes and attractive oak spices. Bright in the mouth and with tannins that are lithe and show plenty of flavor, elegance and balance.
Pale to medium ruby-purple colored, the 2014 Pinot Noir has a very pretty, floral scented nose with notes of roses and violets over a core of cranberries, Bing cherries and pomegranate. Light to medium-bodied, the palate gives a wonderful intensity of perfumed red berries with just enough herbal and earthy lift, supported by finely grained tannins and harmonious acidity, finishing long. A great showing for Cloudy Bay!
