2013 Niclaire Pinot Noir

Dark red hue. Brilliant notes of cloves, sage, anise, wild thyme, with ever so subtle hints of dark cherry, cranberry, pomegranate, and orange blossoms. While the spices are generous in the nose, there is an intriguing inversion in the palate, with the fruit profile leading the surge in flavor. There is an enjoyable and intricate tannin composition, balanced by a multi-layered texture and subtle French oak. This hedonistic Pinot Noir gains focus on the finish while it lingers for quite some time. Enjoy now through 2027.
