Very fruity, fresh, and mineral wine with notes of red fruits, sour cherry, and strawberry. It shows all the typicality of Pinot Noir with many aromatic layers and textures on the palate.
Peter Richards MW: Intriguing aromas of roasted herbs, summer berries and aniseed. Juicy, elegantly bittersweet and food friendly – a proper Pinot, with freshness and complexity. Long, though a touch lean on the finish.
Alistair Cooper MW: Attractive, slightly waxy red fruit and herbal nose. A delicate palate with fine-grained tannins, some salinity and well-judged oaking. A very attractive, elegant and restrained style.
Derceu Vienna Junior MW: Wonderful and inviting notes of red fruits. Floral notes and earthy tones reminiscent of classy Burgundy. On the palate it is beautifully balanced with a deliciously refreshing and long finish.

This is wildly drinkable, wonderfully overdelivering pinot noir, beaming with fruit and complexity. $22 and 95 points! Amazing! Drink up!
TerraNoble is a relatively new find for us, and WHOA, were we impressed! The winery is famed for its world-class carmenere, but the pinot is our jam, oh yes! Aged in concrete eggs and older French oak barrels, it's completely fruit-focused with that Burgundian "sous bois" or forest floor, with a laser beam of raspberry and sweet Marasca cherry, baking spice and savory elements, and that much sought-after tang of minerality. Fresh and long and simply irresistible drinking! Pinot lovers, this will rock your world!
This is a serious score — take advantage while we have! There are only 35 cases...!
PAIRING IDEAS: Take chicken thighs and brush them with honey, soy, ginger, garlic, a bit of hoisin if you have, and bake them in the oven at 400. When they are done, crank up the broiler, brush a bit more glaze on, and get the skins all crispy. Dinner!
MUSIC SUGGESTIONS: The Red Hot Chili Peppers have a new album out – “Unlimited Love” – check it out!
