Tasting Note:

A gorgeous, deep and complex Horseshoe Pinot that swaggers from the glass with dark fruits, crushed stone aromas and a wonderful note of fragrant forests. The friable Monterey shale is very low in vigour so the vines have taken some time to fully establish themselves, but now, as the vines approach the 20 year mark, quality seems to be ratcheting up year on year. Perhaps it’s psychosomatic but the easy to crumble stones seem to have given rise to a very fine crushed stone note on the palate, a talc like minerality that holds wonderful savoury nuances as well as dark, fine berry fruit. Fully destemmed, this is both more savoury and a touch finer than Alpine – and it may take a little longer to fully express itself. Wonderful Pinot Noir.
