Critical Acclaim: 96 pts James Suckling.
Tasting Notes: The nose has super clear red cherries, dark cherries and raspberries with a very complex, spicy edge that is so deeply wrapped into the fruit. Some rose-like florals, too. Wow. The palate has an elegantly juicy feel with a smooth, pastry-like tannin texture. Layered and succulent. Such pristine red to dark-cherry flavors.- James Suckling.
About the Wine: The Bindi Dixon Pinot Noir is based upon declassified grapes from the Original Vineyard planted in 1988 and grapes from the new Block K, planted in 2001. The ideal of this wine is to produce a delicious, perfumed, spicy harmonious, textured wine that is not as intense, complex nor ageworthy as their individual vineyard wines. Even when the outstanding Block K vines are older they continue to declassify sections or barrels from each vineyard and produce this wine.
Varietal: Pinot Noir.
