From the Cellar: Fromm Brancott Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009 – $$$
I bought this at the winery on a visit after the Graperide in 2013. The native Wine Label Weevil has since had a good go at the label front and back. Weird, that hasn’t happened before…
Dark carmine. 14%.
Beautifully aromatic with forward, elegant florality. Dense fruit character, red cherries, and hints of oak and vanilla and spice.
On palate; red cherries, very smooth mouthfeel, fine tannins, well integrated with balance and dense fruit weight. A long finish with that typical Pinot ‘burr’. Abso superb.
FYI James Suckling gave this a 95.
