Tantalus 2010 Pinot Noir $29.90
“Aromas of brown sugar, violets and Bing cherry. The palate is a dance between rhubarb pie, wild raspberry and lush plum. The tannin structure runs between dusty and velvety and gives structure and mouth presence while maintaining elegance. The finish is long, providing ample opportunity to savour the wines single vineyard provenance.” Winemaker David Paterson
