Medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard is beautifully scented of red roses, oolong tea, dusty soil and cinnamon stick with touches of cranberries, rhubarb and fungi. It displays incredible structure on the medium-bodied palate with very firm, very ripe tannins and an electric backbone of freshness supporting the densely packed perfumed red fruits, finishing with great length and depth. 96/100 !
JebDunnuck.com: 96/100 The 2015 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard is a step up over the 2016 (splitting hairs) and offers slightly more depth and richness. Savory red and black fruits, scorched earth, and savory spices all give way to a medium to full-bodied, deep, rich, mineral-laced 2015 that has enough depth and structure to keep for a decade or more.
Antonio Galloni's Vinous.com: 94+/100 The 2015 Pinot Noir Estate Vineyard is a huge, dense wine that is going to need at least a few years to come around. Black cherry, plum, licorice, spice and graphite notes infuse this sumptuous yet tannic Pinot Noir. Readers won't find much vintage 2015 sexiness here, as the Estate is decidedly powerful and tannic. Andy Smith chose to vinify the Estate with no whole clusters.
