Dark plum and black currant lead into aromas of cardamom, pencil shavings and cocoa. On the palate, a deep core of black cherry, tea and cola is buttressed by grainy tannins.
“Planted in 2007, this vineyard delivers exuberant fruit with depth and complexity. A proportion of whole clusters are used, and the wine is aged for 10 months in French casks, 20% new. The result delivers ripe mulberry and fig fruit with notes of smoke and well-integrated oak spice. The density is balanced by a crisp, refreshing acidity that leads to a persistent finish.”

“The 2018 Goodrich Pinot Noir has a medium ruby-purple color and bold scents of aniseed, earth, blackberries and blueberries with touches of bergamot. The medium-bodied palate is firm and juicy with pleasantly earthy fruits and a spicy finish.”
– Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate (April 23, 2020))
“Powerful fruit preserve and cherry aromas display excellent clarity and complementary suggestions of cola, candied flowers and musky earth. Juicy, well-concentrated black raspberry and cherry pie flavors show sharp definition and energetic lift. Closes on a smoky mineral note, delivering strong persistence and building tannins that fold steadily into the wine’s clinging fruit.”
